One of my 4th graders who is unable to attend gym class for health reasons opts to come to me in lieu of gym. So, she gets extra art time and she treasures it. She has some amazing drawing talent. Her "extra" class has been devoted to created realistic animal drawings, using shading with colored pencils and extra fine point sharpies. I am so proud of what she's done. Here are two of her four animals she's made over the course of the year. She really takes her time, and it's obvious. I will definitely miss her next year.
