I was insprired today y'all (in my southern accent)!! I am so excited to write this post! I was inspired by my colleague who is an art teacher. By the way, Ms. Gore is so creative and has such a great personality. The students in her classroom learn more than just ART. She makes her activities fun and engaging.
Well How did my inspiration come about??
This all began when Ms. Gore came to me for ideas on how to integrate technology into her art classroom. She wanted to begin using IMACS as a center in her classroom. I thought, this was such a cool idea. Well she came to the right person! (I am the techno girl)
I put on my techno cap and started researching. I found a video on www.theteachingchannel.org called Graffiti Art. I went to Ms.Gore's classroom and we began watching the 10 minute video on how students used their Digital identity to create Graffiti art in an Art II class. We immediately became inspired. This teacher in this video used a real world experience to teach how to draw Graffiti.
This video insprired Ms. Gore to write a grant requesting funds to purchase IMacs, furniture, and printers. I was also insprired to incorporate Art in my digital design classroom and to use Graftiti Art as an assignment.
I hope you get insprired to use Art in your classroom like we did.
