Since I am new to the blog.  I thought I would start by sharing my 1st projects this year.  This year was the first time I tried Square 1 Art (http://www.square1art.com/), as a art fundraiser for my school.  And let me tell ya' it was A SUCCESS!!  The projects turned out FABULOUS, then parents LOVED them, and it raised extra funds for the art room - yeah - yeah - YEAH!!  I highly recommend Square 1 to any school.

We did SQ1 for the whole school k-5. Projects focuesed on reviewing grade level concepts from the previous year. It was also a great way to get the year rolling and have 1 project finished before the end of 1st quarter

The following are sample projects for each grade level:

1st Grade Geometric City - Shape Review
2nd grade Sunflower - Warm/Cool Colors
3rd grade Owls - Shape/Line Design and Warm/Cool Colors
4th Grade Blue Dog - Color Wheel Review

5th Grade Profile/Portrait - Warm/Cool Colors
