Surprise Art Homework

Central Riverside 4th and 5th grade students studied  Op Art then created line designs.  My words as they headed out the door were, "Now, CRES artists, go share your art knowledge and teach someone else what you learned today."  Imagine my surprise when this student returned the next day with this "super-size" line design.  

You are like... a REAL Teacher!

So, as per our standards coach, I use this tool for my art lessons. Yesterday, a fifth grader stated,"Hey, we have that in our classroom, too. You are like a ...real teacher!" Uh, thank-you.

Greetings from Mrs. Woodlief, New Art Teacher @ Central Riverside Elementary School

Greetings from Central Riverside Elementary Art Teacher, Terry Woodlief. I am thrilled to return to CRES once again where I had the pleasure of serving as art teacher 9 years ago.  I have many fun and artful projects planned for CRES students with lessons aligned with Florida Sunshine State Standards for visual arts as well as cross-curricular connections.

I invite you to visit this blog often as I will post the latest happenings in the art room along with lots of images of exciting art making by the students of Central Riverside Elementary School in Duval County, Florida.

My first post includes pictures of the art room where students will create their masterpieces!
