Art Club 2014!

Art club is an after school club open to the students of Hester Junior High.  This year I have over 70 students who have joined art club and close to 60 of those students attend meetings regularly.  Since there are so many students, we meet either Wednesday OR Thursday after school so we fit in the art room (sort of, anyways).

We had to borrow about 15 chairs and still there were students standing or sitting on the floor!  Most meetings I have students choose to work in the hallway to allow for some elbow room!  
Here's what my classroom looks like with over 40 art enthusiasts busy making artwork:

Some of the projects we have created so far:  

Dr. Seuss inspired drawings with our new Mr. Sketch markers!  (My favorite supply from when I was a student in middle school!)  **Some students preferred to use colored pencils. 

Confetti Bowls: Work in progress pictured above.  We cut up our own confetti and applied layers of glue and confetti to a balloon.  When the bowls were dry we popped the balloons to create these unique decorative bowls!  

Day of the Dead Skulls: We've had a lot of fun creating these festive drawings!
