I became super overwhelmed with the art teaching and gave up on the lesson plan posting, which I will resume in September. I eventually volunteered over 1500 hours at Whitman Elementary last year, and SCRAP donated $140 worth of art materials, which was enough to keep 370 students happy and learning the whole year long. Here are some photos of projects we worked on during the third trimester:

Dozens of families came to see displays of student art and make their own art using tons of art materials donated by SCRAP. Students loved using the hot glue guns, which make it so easy to glue plastic together – it’s not something we could do in class. So many kids made such interesting projects and it was great to watch their parents interact with and encourage them.
