Elementary Art Show

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.
