Welcome Back to School 2010.....

Pencils sharpened, seating charts are done paint brushes ready welcome to the new school year! Our unit this quarter is
The Art of the Himalayas
As you can tell by the photo, I am gathering much info for our first part of the unit- INDIA. We will be creating fun and colorful projects inspired by the beautiful colors of India - paisleys and patterns, flowers and vines to name a few.

So stay tuned for some fun projects down the road....
