My first classes arrive in our Visual Arts Room tomorrow so last week Mrs Vella and I spent some time reorganizing the work tables, Reading Corner, supply tables etc into a new arrangement.The Teacher Challenge had asked that we visit other Blogs and in doing so I discovered The Teaching Palette where I got some great Art Room tips which I put into action. Photographing the room I felt its bare appearance and likened it to a blank canvas.Tomorrow we start the 2011 year with some drawing related to Initial letters and Graeme Base’s illustrations. The Art Room has no soul without the students’ creative ideas and their colourful work displayed. Soon our Room will be a work of Art again. Whether it will be a masterpiece will be up to us all. Welcome back everyone.
