Here is Lindsay's project of Lady Gaga.
So, you would think that the day before break would result in a lot of kids anxious to be away from school and sleeping in...
At least that is what I thought, until bright and early this morning (7:45 to be exact) one of my students made the proclaimation "I could not wait to come back to school today so I could work on this project - I even dreamt about it in my sleep last night!"
Thank you, Kara, for making my day and proving that getting to make art can motivate students to work hard, even if it is the last day before Spring Break!
Kara's image is covered in sequins!
8th grade students are working with their posters before finishing out the week and taking a nice long break from school!
Inspired by the work of Shepard Fairey and other street artists, students are using celebrities, political figures, and characters from movies as the subjects of their work.
From paint to sequins, students are selecting materials and applying it to their work.
These colorful works will be plastered in the halls shortly after break.
Starting today, 8th grade students will be working from photographs to create a street art inspired poster. Using their own image, they will use the Stamp filter in Photoshop, a transparency, and a posterboard to create their works.
The how to guide is in the word document below.

Yesterday evening was a night filled with music, art, food, and fun!
Thanks to the support of the community, we are able to give more than $900 in cash and hundreds of pounds of canned/boxed food to Byron Community Ministries food bank.
This is the third year that we have hosted this event and each year it gets bigger and better.
This would not have been a success without the soup, bread, napkins, and bowls donated by Subway, the orange drink and cups donated from McDonald's, and the clay for the student made ceramic bowls donated by Rovin Ceramics.
Without the wonderful performances by our Jazz Band, Orchestra, and Choir, the event would not have been as jam packed with people who gave both money and food to this awesome cause. Because of their support, families in Byron Center will benefit immediately.
And as far as who bid the highest on the bowl - it was our Superintendent Dan Takens! He won the bowl with a bid that was record breaking!
Tomorrow from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the BCWMS Cafetorium will be the 3rd annual Empty Bowls event to benefit the Byron Communities Ministries' food bank.
This bowl will be on display along with hundreds of student made bowls that represent the people in our community we are helping through our donations of food and funds.
For a donation of non-perishable food items or funds you will get a student-made bowl, and entertainment from our music students as you dine on soup and bread from Subway, cookies from Savory Foods, as well as orange drink from McDonald's.
