A few nights ago, I had an elementary/junior high art show open to the public. Overall it went smoothly, especially for it being my first one. I have a few things I will tweak for next year in terms of the date, time, etc. especially with other calendar items going on this time of year.
I decided to do a themed show and I think this is a great idea! It made everything cohesive, but my theme was quite broad so I could fit a lot of things into it. My theme this year was WILD! about ART. This theme was fun for me to put together ideas for.
I have about 250 students that fall into K through JH and I wanted at least 2 pieces per student. With 3-D items too, I know I had 600+ pieces although I didn't count for accuracy. The show was held in our school gym and it was full of projects! I have a bunch of pictures to share. Many lesson plans I will blog about soon when the end of the year things slow down a bit.
