I finished my DIY (do-it-yourself) Trexi figure. Do you like it?!


Mural & Extra Credit.

Check out the progress we're making on our new mural in the basement hallway! It's a crazy, creepy, fantasy-garden. We're using a reverse-stencil technique that masks off areas of the wall to create designs out of the NEGATIVE space behind the paper cutouts we've taped to the wall. Right now you see pieces taped on top of the first layer of designs. Adding a second layer makes the mural look more 3-dimensional because overlapping adds depth to the picture.

...This makes me think of an EXTRA CREDIT question! If you could paint a mural of anything you want in the school, what would it be? Where would you paint it? And why?

(Be sure to follow the posting rules on the right in order to receive your extra credit points!)



Hey - are you in art and would like some extra credit?!

Here's what you gotta do: This Thursday night is the York High School student art show, from 6-8 pm in the commons. If you GO to the art show and get an AUTOGRAPH from any of the art teachers there (thus proving that you went there!), I will give you 5 extra credit points in class! Wow - you get to see some awesome work by former Sandburg students AND get extra credit for it?! What a deal!



"One of the most difficult challenges of the last 10 years has been to argue the case for more art education in a political climate where only things that are quantifiable are considered worth knowing. This runs contrary to what today’s social thinkers are telling us is needed for the future: an educated population that can think imaginatively, critically, and metaphorically; that can problem-find and problem-solve; that recognizes subtle nuance and ambiguity while seeing the big picture—all things that art contributes to today’s broader curriculum goals."

I was really excited that PTA asked me to make a fun poster for the all-school dance in January. Check it out!



Congratulations to Olivia Olsen, 8th grade Sandburg student, whose design was chosen as the WINNER of the Snowflake design contest! Her design will be printed onto the t-shirts for Snowflake, and she gets to go to Snowflake for FREE! Snowflake will be held this year on Saturday, February 7th at Bryan Middle School. If you'd like more info about the event, you can see Mrs. Blazejak, who is our school's Social Worker.
