Whooooo is excited about Fall??

WooooHoooooo! It's my favorite time of year! Apparently the kiddos are pretty excited too, as you can see in the sweet Fall owls. We got busy with the sponges, matboard, toilet paper rolls (yes, we are all about reusing), Q-tips, scissors, paint and construction paper to create these delightful owls. We finished these up right after testing with 3rd grade and it was the perfect testing relief! Enjoy!!

Art Show!!

It's my favorite night of the year!! Evening in the Garden is such a special night at our wonderful school. Ouside, the talent and hard work of our students can be seen in our school wide musical as well as the hard work and dedication that have gone into our beautiful gardens and grounds. Inside in the gym (in the air condition!), it's amazing to see all of the hard work and talent of our Ford artists on display all together for one night at the art show! The artists have each selected one piece of artwork which they are most proud of to be on display in the gym during our Evening in the Garden. The FRAMES will be on sale this evening (not the artwork inside of the frame; any unsold frames will be unloaded and the artwork returned to each student) and will benefit the art program as well as the Ford PTSA. The cost of the frames is $25 for the first frame and $20 for each additional frame. We hope to see you there! It is breathtaking to see each piece that was carefully selected by each little Ford artist!

Baby, it's still cold outside, but we're warming up the art room with Spring flowers!!

You'll get more information closer to time for the art show at which many of these amazing works will be displayed, but I thought I would go ahead and warm you up in this cold weather with some amazing flowers from our 3rd grade (Georgia O'Keefe inspired) and Kindergarten (wet-on-wet watercolor technique) artists!
