30 day drawing challenge for the summer
CALLING all FBCS students -- former students -- teachers
It's a 30 day drawing challenge for the summer.
For the next 30 days, create art once a day. Whether it's sketching, drawing, painting...whatever, follow each day's challenge and see what happens. That's it! At the end of the challenge, you should be able to look back on 30 pieces of works that speak about your life. Hopefully you will feel better about yourself as an artist and what you've accomplished.
It doesn't have to be a masterpiece.
Start today, start tomorrow -- the goal is 30 drawings over the summer.
It doesn't have to be on art paper. It can be in a notebook.
This is for fun!
So easy and I think it's going to be a blast!
Feel free to share your artwork on my FaceBook page :)
Last day of school
And this happened...
and by popular demand ---- here is the eighth grade Words of Wisdom video
So proud of our Kindergarten students! The graduation ceremony was beautiful.
Joe Castillo and sand art
Artist Joe Castillo uses sand on a lighted table to create beautiful images that tell a story. You may have seen his work on America's Got Talent. This week FBCS art students enjoyed watching his video called Creation. In this presentation, Mr. Castillo creates mankind's encounter with the Creator to the sound track from "The Rhythm of Creation".
Below is a link to his website:

So glad to have my computer back
FBCS has been very busy over the past few weeks! We had Night of the Arts. The artwork and the talent show was fabulous --- I am so proud of our students! We had spirit week. Each day students dressed up. I saw favorite sports teams, tacky tourist, school colors and more. On Friday night we held the 8th grade graduation. Former student, Keandra Bell and Valedictorian Hannah Sarver shared beautiful speeches. Congratulations to all our graduates!
In addition, I have been sorting art work, bagging it up, and sending it home. One parent shared how her daughter invited the family to gather in the living room while she unveiled her artwork one piece at a time. I love it! Hope you enjoy the photos below.
A night of the arts at FBCS
Looking forward to seeing everyone at FBCS tonight at 6:30. Students will be sharing their talents and their artwork. Former student Karlin Wright will be our M.C. and special guests Wreckless Ambitionz will be preforming "Let Your Problems Go".
What are you going to do this summer?
Here is something you can do with your friends --- A drawing website that allows you to virtually connect and draw together while you are apart! According to the website --
Draw it Live is a free application that allows you to work together with other people to draw in real time. You simply create a whiteboard and share its URL to allow other people to join in. No password is required, and no special plugins are required. Just click on the link, type in your name, and start drawing and chatting with your friends.
Here's a photo of my first drawing....
