For five years I did art club elementary - 4th and 5th grade for no
compensation and was not supposed to use
my regular school budget - was expected to pluck my supplies out of thin air
which I amazingly did!!! This year because I am now tenured and on career
I can count it for career ladder hours and will be compensated for it. Still
supplies out of the air though. We meet once or twice a month. It has
as a girls only club - partly because I threw the rowdy boys out last year.
boys have begged for a boys art club and I guess I will give it a two month
try. We have been currently creating kaleidoscopes out of paper towel tubes,
donated beads and jewels. Purchased mirror like foil but it didn;t work. Am
trying to cut small mirrors - for the inside reflections - has started to
real headache. Last year we made didgerdoos out of christmas wrap tubing.
Will do some latch hook pretty soon. Roberta
