I found a fun new website...

I found this really fun new website the other evening while window-shopping on the web.  It's called Polyvore, and you can browse different fashion, jewelry, celebrity style, housewares, design... just about anything - to create these really neat little digital collages of inspiration.

Here's one that I made:

Items in this set:
Betsey Johnson Calandra, $150
Betsey Johnson Athena - Pink Leopard, $150
Hello Kitty Die Cut Face Tote Bag, $60
eternal sunshine handbag, $52

Pretty neat, huh?  If you decide to check out the site, make a collage, print it out, and bring it in.  I'll give you extra credit!


News items, plus a cool video.

So, I have good news, bad news, and a cool video to share today:

1. Bad news first - today I found out that student artwork (part of a display hanging in the school) was VANDALIZED by students!  That makes me so sad and angry all at the same time.  How could someone do that to another's work?  Students put a lot of time and hard work into their art, and I want to share it with everyone in the building... but I can't if this continues... :(

2. Then the good news - I won a Thiems Grant for POTTERY WHEELS for next school year!  I wrote a grant for all three middle schools, and we won!  Each school is getting some wheels to use as part of the 8th grade sculpture classes.  We're also getting a visit from the company who's selling us the wheels.  She's a ceramic artist, too, so she's going to show us all about our new table-top wheels.  Get ready to get MESSY!!! :)

3. And a cool video.  This was made by a college art student as part of a class.  I thought it was neat and wanted to share it with you:
