My TTU Art Class
Next, we did the letters of the alphabet using colored string and Elmer's glue. The glue dries hard and the letters almos thave a plastic feel to them. Isn't that neat?! The "E" won this contest...but I secretly like them all!
Finally, this past Monday we made art out of our names written in cursive. This is done with folding the paper and cutting, kind of like when you make paper snowflakes. Some of them turned out to be very abstract, beautiful pieces of art.
I am enjoying teaching this class very much. I have a great group who work very hard and will someday make wonderful teachers. I am meeting a lot of new people. It makes my Mondays alot brighter! It is also alot of fun for me to plan and the participate in these activities. Some of the students are perfectionists (I can relate!) and are stressing about being our of their comfort zones. Hopefully, we are all learning that art can be fun...and even maybe a little relaxing!
