Over a week long adventure leading my students through the cultural riches of LA I tried to sneak in a few drawings and paintings. The city was as green as I’ve ever seen it and truly felt like the sunshine state it is!
One of my favorite new courses I have created at my school is the Art of the Sketchbook. This year, I had an opportunity to teach this a second time and to collaborate with another teacher at my school who is an english teacher. Together we worked to help our students in this course develop a strong creative habit of using their sketchbooks as a way to see and understand the world through both images and words. The images below are from my own sketchbook as I worked along with my students throughout the course.
At a voting party (a party in which we go through our voter pamphlet and try to decipher who and what to vote for) tonight, I asked Gryphon to give me a tattoo and this is what I got.
I just have to say that I think my 5 year old kid can tattoo better than your 5 year old kid! Check out that banner, heart, and classic american message: I lov dad.
