Kinders....they’re little & cute & require lots of energy & theatrics. They did great painting & gluing during the first few weeks of art! I compared the paint brushes to ballerinas staying on their tippy toes (thanks for the tip @cassie_stephenz ) & compared the glue bottles to tap dancers just “tapping” dots of glue. They loved it & did great. So excited to see where this year will take #mrssamselsartroom #artteacher #artteachersofinstagram #elementaryart #arteducation #kinderart

Another fabulous year teaching elementary art! All 3 school-wide murals are up. Clay gears were made by all students & glazed by families at art night. I even had time to add a mural in front of my classroom.

Thank you everyone for the help & support. Tonight’s Pop Art Show was a huge success. Students preformed in band & orchestra, viewed art work & glazed a clay piece for our mural. #mrssamselsartroom #4thgradeart #5thgradeart #waynethiebaud #fineartsnight #artteacher #donutart #claydonuts #feltdonuts #claycupcake #feltpizza Special thanks to @cassie_stephenz for always being an inspiration.

Paper mache isn’t the easiest to teach in a large classroom but these 3rd grade students are doing fabulous & having a great time. They are learning about Egypt, the mummification process & designing their own headdress. Stay tuned to see their finished product. #mrssamselsartroom #artteachersofinstagram #artteacherlife #artteachers #elementaryart #3rdgradeart #egyptartwork #headdress #papermache

It’s easy to take advantage of the simple things in life. To forgot or not notice the potential suffering/hardships in others. This “Be Kind” bell traveled across the country & found a very special place. The Boston Holocaust Memorial has 6 glass towers each representing a major Nazi death camp with 6 million numbers etched to represent the Jews that loss their lives. This memorial is about remembrance & it is my hope everyone that sees this bell also remembers the importance of kindness. #kindnessmatters #bekind #bensbells #bensbellsproject #mrssamselsartroom #bostonholocaustmemorial #spreadkindness
