Happy New Year- Welcome to 2017


Happy New Year and welcome to 2017!  Today we will begin with a favorite project called #OneWord in which we choose a word that will be our focus for the new year much like a simplified resolution.  the idea comes from Smithtown East alumni and best-selling author Jon Gordon who you can watch outline the concept below.  the example above are from doing this project one year ago in class.

Also this marks the 10th year of this classroom blog Artroom 161 and seeing that I was just moved out of artroom 161 it seems like a fitting time to end it and start something new.  I'll be starting a new blog soon and retiring this one at the end of the school year.  We've come a long way in the past 10 years, we'll be looking back on some of the highlights before it ends!
