Summer Time Blues and Greens and Paint

 The highlight of my summer thus far is following this guy
to the High Museum in Atlanta where Mo Williams (author of the Pigeon books and so many others) had an exhibit. I love work in progress so that I can see all the steps an artist does. In addition to loving the original sketches, I loved the the work was hung at the eye level of children. 

There was also lots of other art in the perm any collection. Olivia enjoyed her first Rothko.
And of course Abrum couldn't resist a moment to be silly with thousand year old art
There are so many things I can't wait to share with you when school begins! So be prepared! AND for all the ones who know even art teachers get in trouble-I was not fussed at for getting to close to the art this time.

WES-School Board Appreciation Art Piece

There are many purposes for creating Art. We create Art to define ourselves, our world, and our hopes for the future. The artists of Wright Elementary would like to share this work to show a "piece" of who we are. Each student from Kindergarten to Sixth Grade has created a unique puzzle piece to be included into this assemblage of pieces representing our school and it's talented, and special students. This mosaic is an illustration of who we are and who we are becoming thanks to the support of our parents, our teachers, administrators, staff and the school board of Anderson District Two.
