I then asked how many considered themselves good artists. I was so sure my music people would be the artists and my math people would not....to my surprise (again), an almost equal number of math and music people were artists!
|Here are some more favorites!|
This is when I choose four of my favorites -- no easy task. These pictures get framed and hang on my waiting room wall for the entire following year! First place also becomes the yearbook cover, and 2nd place becomes the back cover. Not only do the students take pride in seeing their framed art on my wall and on the yearbook, but the parents are naturally proud as well.
What about the rest of the drawings? Well, I save every single picture, card, photo, note or whatever else my student gives me in an individual file folder. They all know I have one on them and now and then they ask to look through it- this is a really fun thing to do at the Back-to-School party! Its so much fun to see some of those old pages where they were just new beginners and now they are so much older and advanced in their piano studies. Its kind of like looking through an old scrapbook.
