The Iran Job

Tonight I went the screening of The Iran Job  at the Halsey.  This was a fantastic film.  As and art teacher, I especially enjoyed the part where Kevin Sheppard was able to communicate with his building superintendent through drawing.  Art is a a visual language!  You can check it out on Netflix.

I think that this type of performance art would be very unnerving to many people.  I often have a hard time shutting down and relaxing.  The time when I feel I can best relax is after practicing yoga and then being able to just lie on the floor.  So many times I have fallen asleep.  I love the introduction of the lab coat.  It creates the costume for the performance.

Worries and Fears

My 8th graders are making ceramic fear and worry jars.  We first discussed some common fears and worries of students their age and then created ceramic boxes and jars from slab and coil hand building techniques.  They are looking very good!!
