8th Grade Canvas Project

For the first year in my teaching career I found myself submerged in the world of acrylic paint. I have always loved working with oils and acrylics. Now that I have the joy of teaching junior high, I am able to share my knowledge and open up a world of exploration to my students.

Throughout the process, many students learned that a final product does not always end up how they originally planned. Ideas change along the way, but on the contrary they sometimes stay the same. The results - excellent. I am extremely proud of our eighth graders here at St. Raphael School, and all of the effort they put into creating something they can remember forever. Enjoy!

Fifth graders are ROCKING out their self-portraits on our iPad application "Brushes". I am amazed the level of quality that their portraits display. Way to go fifth grade!
