When Joyce over at Flamingo Clay Studio (and Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery!) told me she was interested in working with some students over the summer I knew just the students to ask- some of my AP 3D Design ladies! I knew that these girls would be dependable and that they would have the drive to learn new techniques and create work at a fast pace- and they are doing it! I am so proud! While many students are sleeping in or playing video games this summer, this group of girls has been getting up to go to the clay studio 2-3 times a week for hours at a time to work with clay and to help Joyce out at the studio.
I stopped in today to check in with the LWHS girls and Joyce let me know that they will be featured in her show at the gallery that opens this coming Friday! Not only that, but I will have a chance to show some pieces...cause she doesn't want blank walls and I have a bajillion art pieces at home so it works perfectly!
This was a real surprise- at the end of the year luncheon Dr. Epps called me up for an award! How cool is that?!
Okay...so Gordon Ramsey may be just a tad dramatic, but you get the idea. End of the year- gotta shut down the art room for the summer.
I have to say- my students are always SO HELPFUL. I have a list of jobs on my desk and the kids check off which ones they want to complete, some for service but honestly most of them just to help me out! They sharpen colored pencils, test out markers, help clean and organize- you name it! I love my students!
...and that's a wrap!
