As you know, my first graders have been adding texture to their art projects. Here's a quick review of what we've ben up to. We started out studying Gustav Klimt and his use of color, line and shape to fill his work with texture. We created a piece using "The Kiss" as our inspiration.
Next, we learned texture vocabulary and used a viewfinder to locate shapes and lines that reminded us of a particular texture.
Finally, we recorded our lines and shapes in a texture sketchbook. 
We continued with texture by reading "Where the Wild Things Are," by American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak. We studied his illustrations to see how he used line and shape to develop texture.
Then we drew monsters and included the lines and shapes from our sketchbooks to show texture.
Next, we painted them with watercolors. As you can see, the results are fantastic!
The teachers now have a great writing prompt. It just so happens that they are working on the use of adjectives. Perfect!

Kathleen, your work with the Children's Creative Project is truly remarkable. With your knowledge as a professional educator and your talent as an artist, you have created a uniquely effective tool for teaching that is powerful and fun! You are impressive and I pray that teachers, educational administrators, parents and art lovers will stand up and take notice of you.


Job well done, Kathleen! Your students' works are amazing. Only a good teacher can push students to come up with such results. Your way of teaching textures is also noteworthy. It is very easy to understand! You also did the English writing teachers some service by giving them prompts. That deserves a whole new round of commendation! Keep it up!

Wireless routers are one of the most essential devices I use. Out of the wide variety of routers available, Netgear routers have made a mark simply because they are quite inexpensive and have a lot of positive feedback going around for them.
