First Day of Art Club

Oh how exciting that we’ve got a new art club at our school! 25 kiddos and an excited art teacher make up our new club, and today was our first meeting! Even though my seasonal allergies stole my voice, I still whispered some exciting news to the new members and made them “solemnly swear” to do their best and try new things, as difficult as they may seem to be, without complaining.
After they made the club promise, we talked about several murals, a large mosaic mural, and set designs we would make for the musicals!

After they were super excited about being in art club, they were introduced to our first artist we’d study, Keith Haring. Even though I’d taught the 5th and 3rd graders about this artist last school year, none of the members of those classes were in the club. So we started fresh.

Then we drew!
