I recently found this drawing of alien concepts in a box of old keepsakes.  I think I drew them in fourth grade.  I remember drawing them during class.  I'm sure I was supposed to be listening to the teacher.  Instead my imagination was wandering somewhere between Neptune and Pluto.

Expeditionary Learning Conference Display

My principal--who is attending the Expeditionary Learning National Conference in Baltimore--sent me this photo today.  It highlights some of my students' work from an assignment in Art Foundations (see my blog post on February 4th).  The display describes the project and shows copies of earlier drawings that demonstrate the progression and "revision" required to complete the final 18x24 inch artwork.  I was impressed with the quality of the art that resulted from this process.  While there was only room for three images to be displayed, they could have easily selected twenty.  Kudos to the students for the hard work!
