Welcome to the Art Room! I am technically the itinerate art teacher (luckily at the same school 5 days a week) and my room is quite far from the other specials. However I love my first grade neighbors!
My room has tons of storage and natural light and I even have TWO bathrooms.
Just inside the classroom I have an art gallery. I use this to review concepts with the students when they line up. The kidney table has been removed (thank goodness!) And the hooks come in handy when kids have their jackets or sweaters. I haven’t decided what to put on the bulletin board yet — any ideas?
This bulletin board reflects the diversity of my school. I asked my bilingual facebook friends to translate “Art is a Language the Whole World Speaks.” This is right outside of my classroom and I love hearing students and faculty recognize the different languages.
Rodin’s “Thinker” asks WHY. The kids are curious and I tell them that its to remind them that they should always question the world around them and find the answers through self expression and exploration.
More to come 🙂
