Something was fishy fishy in the art room today. . . there were erasures stashed in marker containers, paintbrush handles soaking in water, used paper towels in the sink, really? I spent about an hour getting things back to normal (one of my classes was on a field trip) and now everything feels great again. But really, I have a picture example of how the supplies should look and about 100 kids asking me "Mrs. Stinz can I help you!" Please help me. . . so I give them a job, they are done in one minute and . . . is this spring fever? I do have a few really super helpers that keep me from losing my mind, so I hate to count them out. I am so thankful for them!
Now that I've ranted and disclosed my organizational woes. . . speaking of fish. . . here are our version of the infamous fish/pinchpots. I made a big deal about making tints (mixing white with their colors) I think the colors look far more fishlike and interesting mixed with white. I would give credit for this project but it's gotten to the point where everyone is doing it and I saw it in an old sculpture book that was collecting dust in the closet. Link up your post if you made them too. I would love to see your version.
