sketchbooks & inspiration

The first week of art was all about being inspired as an artist.  Be observant of the world around you.  If you are keeping a sketchbook at home, try adding a pocket for saving magazine clippings and inspirational images that spark your interest. See the page button above - Sketchbook Ideas -  for a list of things to draw.  Writing in your sketchbook is also a great idea!

Welcome back, Dolvin artists!

I am looking forward to a new school year, and after seeing the Salvador Dali exhibit today at the High Museum, I know we're going to have a real SURREAL time this year.  Kids, remember to wear old clothes or bring a smock/apron on your art day.  See you soon!

Great work from 09-10

I am looking forward to sharing fun classroom moments on this blog.  I am slowly but surely getting this thing figured out.  Come back later!!!
