room and desk

thoughts:

Just some doodles for a classroom. Okay that’s a wrap! Hope you all had fun thinking about the good old days. Make some art. I want to see your art. Share on instagram  with #schooldazeart

I will think up a general clever # so you can share your work k.

P.S I think I found a great direction for this blog. We will have weekly projects with this same format. Sometimes I will work on words and other times I will redo projects.

thoughts:

Oh what about all of the cool notebooks. I did a second sketch. My mind just wandered to the mean lunch ladies who yell at you to be quite and just eat. Yeah I know kids get excited and there’s only a limited time to eat but…

Day 8 School Days

thoughts:

I love hot air balloons. I remember making one in like 6th grade.  Maybe this sketch is my favorite! Wait I said that two sketches ago. Next time I will draw and paint the entire balloon. OI didn’t plan for a hot air balloon but as I was drawing it just happened. Oh I should do a whole series on hot air balloons. I have tons of projects that I can redo. Yes its happening!

I was thinking about the subjects like math that can be hard. I just want to remind myself and all kids to keep going and reach for the sky. Oh and make friends along the way. Enjoy the ride!

Day 7 School Days

thoughts:

This is just another fun idea. Laying all your supplies out and deciding what you want to create. The best part is you get an idea and go for it. There is always that one kid who shouts,”Hey why did you draw your trees like that? They’re ugly. ” That’s when you know that some kids just grow up way to fast. Paint some purple trees!

DAY 6 School Days

0815161015[1]

words: recess and ball

thoughts:

I love this design.Wait! Maybe, this is my favorite. I would love to paint it for real. If there is one thing I have learned from this challenge its that my best work just happens. I love it when that happens. Again recess is just a carefree time. I love the murals right there on the handball courts.  I think this one speaks for itself. I think of the smiles.

words: table and pencil

thoughts:

Who do you think lives here? I was thinking maybe a tiny little mouse. No a tiny little bear. I remember reading a cute picture book. The characters had such furniture. Its just a fun idea. This would be awesome for a writing prompt or a discussion.

words: recess and swing

 thoughts:

Remember the times we wished for just five more minutes of recess. What about  the kid who hogged the swing. It felt like forever before your turn. I want to paint this with such color. I’m thinking hues of  orange and yellow and a touch of teal or aqua. Oh yeah!

One of the best activities to do in school is color.  Well I think so. What about the easy and fun paint by number worksheets? Oh the simple days.  I have this amazing idea to draw lots of crayons.

Words: book and window

Thoughts:

Books are awesome! Right now just think of all the characters that have transported you to another world and made you laugh , cry, hope, fight, fly, dream, live dare, and fear with them.

You never forget these characters.

Guess which books or characters?

Let’s Go Back to The Good Days…

in school.

 

supplies: For this 10 daily doodle challenge I will be working with a pencil and paper. I may add in some paint and who knows.

Words: I will pull out two words from separate lists:  I need practice in drawing simple objects-list one.  The theme for this challenge is school-list two.  So let’s go.

Today’s words are whiteboard and tea set

Thoughts: (Oh darn a piece of lead in between the s and t- oh well its a sketch.)

In school we always have to look at the whiteboard and pay attention. Teachers are ALWAYS telling us to pay attention. What if the lesson is boring?

I can’t tell you how many boring so called motivational posters I have seen. I would sure love to see this one in my class. Or excuse me would have. I think about all the times that I was bored in class with textbook work . BUT,  I had plenty of times that transported me to a new world where my curiosity and imagination filled with spunk. I believe that is where you learn the most. This is how the magic of truly understanding the subject happens. It’s the kind of learning that drives you bonkers and changes your life forever. Right?

So yes look and listen but GO and do with such purpose that you lose yourself.  In losing yourself can you really find yourself. Does this make sense? What a fun conversation! So go for an adventure in a book, if math is hard then keep trying and find a way for it to make sense. Ask questions.  Be proactive! Remember that there are no impossibilities.
