In the classroom- Picasso Line Potraits

Been working on some portraits with my third grade. I got the idea of Picasso Inspired portraits from a awesome colleague of mine a few years back and have doing them ever since ( thanks Mrs. Noe)
But this year we focused on Line. Here is the PowerPoint, lesson samples and student work. I think they did a great job!

Relaxing weekend in Newport last weekend.

A girls trip to Newport is always a good one! It was perfect weather so the walking was great! B&B def could have been better ;) but it was in a perfect location so it did the job. Had some great food too, The best at 22Bowens wine bar. Such great food! Wonderful trip altogether!
