I heard great news today for our Kindergarten artist Aleena. Her self-portrait was chosen from over 750 pieces submitted from art teachers throughout the state of Illinois to be a part of the 2014-15 Illinois Art Education Association Student Art Show. She will be honored at the artist award celebration with the other 39 students who had art selected for this year-long traveling art show.
Use the "You Matter" manifesto from Angela Maiers to spark a conversation with students about the difference they can make in the world now and/or in the future.
Or celebrate International Dot Day by asking students how they will make their mark one day. Turn the table on tabloids by celebrating good character and good choices in life.
Our third graders just finished their monochromatic self-portraits in 3/4 poses. As an extension to this project I asked them to create a 6 word poem about themselves. These became their artist statements on Artsonia and the words they would use along with the Wordfoto app to create a new digital piece of art. They turned out beautiful!
See wordfoto gallery on Artsonia and some examples below.

Sharing images with students for iPad projects can be tricky. I don't want to spend my whole class period teaching students to login to my dropbox, fish through my folders, and risk accidentally deleting or moving something important to find the image they need. So I found a new way to quickly share out images using the dropbox WITHOUT students logging in. It gives me all the flexibility of sharing out images on the fly without and risks. View my tutorial below to see how it works. Don't have Dropbox? Click here.
