Building Rome In A Day?

This past Saturday, I had a great time checking out and participating in 'The 24 Hour Roman Reconstruction Project, or, Building Rome in a Day.' My friend Jenny and I did a little work on construction and decorating structures earlier in the evening . Later that evening, I got to go back and join in the destruction of the model city. It was a lot of fun! I added a little set of it to my Flickr account.

Some Cool Stuff From My Classroom

Here are a few images of fourth and fifth graders working on Tree Silhouette Landscapes. Aren't they looking cool!?

My First Attempt At Glass Fusing!!! :-D

I can't wait to get a kiln in my classroom to experiment with. Some of the more layered pieces probably could have used more time in the heat to help make the edges lay down better and become smoother, but I have to start somewhere. More to come, stay tuned...

Museum Day and Glass Fusing!

Yesterday was Austin Museum Day. It was so... much fun, and free. I had a great day. My student teacher, Kelly and I will be attending a glass fusion workshop this afternoon! I can't wait. I've been wanting to learn how to do this for a while, and hopefully be able to start teaching it soon. Oh, how I love art! :-D

My New Hair...

I finally got my hair the color I've been wanting. Yay! The wonderful and talented Rina Lee at Image Perfect in Leander did it for me.
Here I am. :-P

Wild Things and Cool Stuff

Here are some pics of me starting my example for the 'Where The Wild Things Are' lesson; and my new mug, that my friend Heather made. I love it! (and the Twilight mug and saucer she already made me) Ah... vampires... hahaha!

Something New Part Two

Here it is a little farther along. (for some reason, the scanned image came out very dull looking) Yesterday's image is truer to the colors.

Something New

I am working on NOT doing self-portraits, and/or journaling through paintings and drawings... Eh... it's not going so great, hard habit to break and all. Here is me trying something new. It's still in progress, but I think it's interesting. Hope everyone's week is off to a good start. Mine seems to be. :-)

Well, it's not a painting...

but SURPRISE!!! It's a self-portrait. The first one of the year (school year that is). hahaha!
