Classroom Auction Projects

School auc­tions are pop­ping up every­where, and class­room auc­tion projects are an ideal way to get stu­dents involved! With all the fund­ing cuts in edu­ca­tion these days, pro­grams like art and music are forced to com­pete for an increas­ingly small share of their school’s bud­get.… if they make it into the bud­get at all. In many schools, […]

Masterpiece Mosaics: a Collaborative Art Project for Grades K — 8

These col­or­ful projects, which I call “Mas­ter­piece Mosaics”, were a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort by my stu­dents in grades K through mid­dle school.

More Quilts!

Just for fun, I thought I would post a few more pic­tures of the quilts we made using Kid­sKreations for the print­ing of the kids’ art­work.

Creative Art Quilts

Home­made quilts are another great fund rais­ing idea that you can do with Kid­sKreations! What makes these quilts so charm­ing and unique is that they are made using kids’ art­work! I did this with each of my K-6 Art classes and we auc­tioned them off at our Spring Open House & Art Show. Our quilts […]
