Art Rocks was a great celebration!

Friday night from 7-9 P.M. was our second annual student art exhibit which showcased the artwork of our students throughout this school year.  There was an overwhelming amount of art spread out throughout our building due to the fact that I displayed everything that every child had made.  The hallways and gymnasium flourished with large scale, small, two dimensional and three dimensional art!  The ceiling contained suspended Dale Chihuly inspired works and outdoors our sidewalks were lined with mosaic garden sculptures to invite our viewers in! The fundraiser of the evening was largely successful as well, as students and parents could purchase a ceramic mug their child had made with a root beer float inside.  Thank you to all who attended and for all of the wonderful comments that were made about the blossoming art program at FACA!

 At the end of the night, my son Grady told me he thought the show was nice too!


  1. Your photos are beautiful! Congratulations on a successful show!

  2. I have just discovered your blog. It's inspiring, congratulations.

  3. Hello Robyn,
    I really love your students art work. I am also a art teacher and would love to do the mosaic silhouettes with my students here at Oglethorpe Ave. Elementary in Athens Georgia. Could you send me the instructions on the process. I promise to give you the credit you deserve!!

  4. Robyn,
    I enjoyed browsing through your 4th grade section. I am a 4th grade classroom teacher looking for ways to incorporate more of the arts in my classroom. I have done board game projects before for math, but love the idea of doing it for biographies, it so happens my upcoming non-fiction unit is biographies so I would like to try it out. I'm wondering if you gave the students any examples or guidelines for this project? If you would be willing to share any helpful tips that would be great.
