Summer Staff Development

So this past week I attended the summer staff development in my county for elementary art teachers. We had lots of teachers sharing lots of ideas on lesson plans, classroom management, and technology! I even got to present about blogging in art education and it went great! :) So well in fact that I plan on presenting at our state conference (GAEA) this fall with my friend Mollie (from Art with Ms. K).

At our staff development we also had some teachers doing some hands-on lesson with us! Lots of fun!! :)

Basket weaving- SO MUCH FUN!!

House sculptures! Mine is the brown treehouse looking one.

Another great example created by a fellow art teacher!


  1. More information on those house out of popsicle sticks, please. Those look terrific and I'm already imagining how to add that lesson to my curriculum. Is it just pop sticks and construction paper. Was the focus on architecture or cultural?

    1. The teacher that presented on that lesson gave us the lesson plan from Dick Blick.
      You can see the lesson plan here:

  2. The stilt houses look great. Love sharing projects with my colleagues!
