If you didn't already know from reading my blog I work in the inner city. This fact is very important because it means the parents either work or are not present at the school. My parent support is little (except one good friend whose a mom at the school), and that's a lot of art for one art teacher with loaded schedule! I am so proud that I got so much art work up with the help of some students. I am a little disappointed that a few of the students were not able to find their work! I arranged it by grade but either they did not produce finished pieces, could not find it, or it simply did not get up. How did I deal with this totally embarrassing situation? I told the student that there work was really good and that there must have been a huge mistake. I put up their work for tomorrow!
So reflections for next year, I plan to only show the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders and focus on each child having 2 pieces up. I have a few questions for you though. . . how do you deal with your art shows? Where do you find help?
P.S. I know these pictures are dark because I took them at 10:00 at night. Yep, I'm crazy.
