The State ARt Show

I went to the State Capitol today to see the Youth Art Month Art Show put on by the WAEA (Wisconsin Art Ed. Association).  The show includes artworks from K-12 students from all over the state.  Our school has two artworks in the show.  One from the middle school teacher and one from one of my students.  I'm so glad hers got chosen for the show because 1) it is a wonderful painting in my opinion!  and 2) she was very excited to be chosen (which she should be.)  The reception is this Friday afternoon.  If you live in Wisconsin, the show will be up through this coming Friday.  Here are some pics for you.


 Here is my student's lovely landscape.  She is in 3rd grade.   I wrote about this lesson here.  This photo doesn't do the colors justice.  I think it is even more beautiful in person.


Capitol pics! 

Wisconsin Capitol One Year AGO..   Last year, the art show was postponed a few weeks because of the protests over the politics in Wisconsin.  The picture above is my husband at the capitol in the days where protestors slept overnight and he worked crazy long weeks covering the news.
I always take my camera with to get lots of good pictures of all the great artwork at the art show.  It is a fabulous place to get new ideas and be inspired for lesson plans.  Here are some of my favorites from the show this year.
