Artsy Fartsy

Towards the end of the year the Fine Arts Department is swamped. Its when all of our competitions, musicals, award nights, concerts and end of the year showcases happen. Its also when I normally get the most pumped about the next year as I see my kids win awards, display their artwork so proudly and get to hear feedback from the parents about their kiddos love for art. I actually couldn't fall asleep last night as I thought through two seperate ceramic projects for next years 7th and 10th graders....geesh.

I'm also pretty stoked right now because my printmaking class is in the middle of an awesome graffiti wall showing our school's name and the Daniel characteristics we strive towards...and my 10/11th graders are killing it...they are leading one another, encouraging and getting a lot done daily....which is great since we have 3 class days left!!!!
