|Each artist's style is unique assignment.|
I was trying to inspire others to enjoy and make art with passion throughout the day. I loved seeing the sixth graders making their color wheels. They really seemed to enjoy seeing what new colors they could make from red, yellow and blue. I only gave them the primary colors to mix all the others in their color wheel.
I had a few more art supply donations from a couple of teachers. I could make an interesting collage of all the odds and ends I have received, well meaning and well appreciated, by all. Maybe I could sell the collage and generate some art supply funds. Now, that's a creative thought!

Today was a really heavy-clouded day. When one lives at the beach, sometimes the fog rolls in, and then it takes all day to roll out. Such was today. I wore a sleeveless dress due to the heat, and you all know how tired I am of the dress-code, so I was living on the edge.
One really funny moment that I experienced in the classroom today,
but not funny haha, was when two girls in the fourth grade class said "En Sha Allah" (if God wills) in a mocking way to me after I explained the art assignment. They were basically saying they might or might not do the assignment. (Yawn.) We'll see if God wills it. I asked them to apologize for interrupting our learning (ala Marva Collins) and they did. They were well behaved after that:-)
