Today I was eating lunch at my desk...looking at the mural that I painted and I had what a call an "art spark"! I thought to myself, "Mondrian would look great on that little part of the wall" so I stopped eating, grabbed a paint brush and started painting. My afternoon classes never heard of, Piet Mondrian but I got them curious. My morning classes will be surprised when they see what I did in an afternoon. I would like to add one more artist to my murals and that will be Henri Matisse. Once I paint Matisse's cut-outs to the front wall in the classroom, I am done! It was a wonderful Friday. Ms. B.
I am an art educator and a professional artist. I write this blog to guide my students in (SEL) social, emotional, and academic development. S.E.L. is the District of Columbia Public School's priority because we believe that we must educate the whole child.
