Weeks 16 & 17

We wrapped up our video project during week 16's class.  It was a whole lot of fun and creativity going on in art enrichment class, with kids getting their faces painted, wearing wigs, and coming up with great concepts for our 3 words video project.  Mrs. Luker is going to put the video together using Flip Video software.  I can't wait to see the finished product!

During week 17, I was in Washington, DC for Parenting Magazine's Mom Congress.  Mrs. Luker started a new project, involving Pelotonia.  Students were asked to being drawings for the Pelotonia blog.  Pelotonia is a 180 mile bike race that starts at Ohio State University, goes down to Athens, the back up to OSU.  Riders raise funds which are all donated to cancer research at The Arthur G. James Cancer Center.

A friend of Mrs. Luker writes the blog for Pelotonia and has asked for student artwork to include in the site.   We viewed the blog and images from last year's race.  Then, we brainstormed ideas for sketches of bikes, riders, helmets, the finish line, etc.  All of the finished drawings will be featured on the Pelotonia blog.  What a great opportunity for our students!!
