November happenings

The students have been busily working on their Christmas parent gifts during art. But as they are a surprise, no pictures will be posted yet! Instead here are some pictures of some November happenings at Shady Oak.

Students enjoyed a new covering of mulch on the playground by making ‘mulch angels.’

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity. Please check out the Shady Oak websites at http://www.shadyoak.net/ and http://www.shadyoakprimary.com/ to learn more about these unique schools located in Richmond, TX.
