I’m excited about my current collaboration with our art teacher. Mrs. Horton schedules an evening Art Showcase at the end of each year to feature artwork produced by her students. This year she asked if I had any ideas about including the media center and others in the building. After a bit of brainstorming, we came up with students drawing album covers to include our band teacher (the band will also perform at the showcase) and students drawing book covers to include me. I pulled tons of books from the shelves and from online to show students some great fiction, non-fiction, and biography covers for ideas. Mrs. Horton brought her classes to the library for me to show the books and to help the kids search the shelves as well as online for the perfect book cover to draw. Based on the book covers they have found to draw, there should be some awesome projects at the Art Showcase. The media center will open it’s doors May 9th to display some of this fabulous art that our students have produced. I can’t wait!
