The Art Classroom Surprise is Announced & Maccabia!

Good News Galore Ya’ll!!  So I can finally share the surprise that I had mentioned a couple blogs ago.  Let me preface this by giving a HUGE, MASSIVEThank Youuuu” to the Hillel Torah PTA for sponsoring this AMAZING addition to the art classroom.  You ladies are fabulous and I just can’t thank you enough for this!  I’d also like to thank our business administrator Dov Shandalov who assisted in making this process run smoothly (it wasn’t easy!) and Rivka Varnai for helping this idea come to fruition!  Our students are about to benefit tremendously and I know without a doubt – they are going to love every second of this new experience.  Thank you, thank you!   So are you all ready for the surprise???

Hillel Torah now has it’s very own KILN!!!!

For those of you that don’t know what a Kiln is: it is essentially an oven for baking ceramics.  This is super fantastic for students of all ages as this now gives our kids the opportunity to work with clay, texture, and bring a 3-Dimensional element to our art program.  I anticipate the clay portion of art to begin around Spring and go through summer break.  How exciting!!  Am I right??  Thank you again PTA!


Ok so this past Monday I went to the Nursery school to visit my Little Littles and if you have children at the Nursery School, then I’m sure you might have seen these displayed.  I taught the Little Ones about the fabulous artist that is Roy Lichtenstein.

3287-129

We talked about his use of Primary colors and dots.  And THENNNN we used our OWN face to create a Roy Lichtenstein inspired work of art!


Last thing I will talk about in this week’s blog is dun dun dunnnnnn: MACCABIA!

I am assisting the students in creating their banners for the competition portion of MACCABIA.  My role is one of guidance.  These kids have been so amazingly motivated and independent: I am so excited to see the finished products!
