Hello! I teach middle school art 6-8 and I have bags of oil pastel bits and pieces. I hate to throw them out, but they are too small to use. Does anyone have a great idea out there? I don't want to melt them down into crayons.

I am interested in trying to use oil paints with my students. I have students that range from PreK to 12th. I feel certain that oil painting would be best done with the older students. I do not know much about oil painting and I am open to any advice I can get.

I have seen some amazing art from other middle schools used x-actos to create them. I am a bit nervous about letting my middle school kids use them. Anyone with experience with this? Safety, management, etc? Tips,certain type I should buy?

Really stuck trying to pick a topic for my graduate action research topic. I'm leaning toward assessment focus or art/literacy focus. I would like to hear what others focused on or other ideas. I want to make sure it holds my interest(not the easiest for this popcorn brain) & benefit my teaching. TIA!!!

Does anyone have any experience with air brushing (personal experience or classroom experience)? I have a number of students begging to get involved in airbrushing but I don't even know where to begin or whether or not it could be a feasible activity for an advanced art group.

One of my students is pregnant - due in Nov. I' plan to check MSDS on the safety of items. We don't have a clay program. Can anyone give me any quick tips or thoughts if they have had his situation to deal with? (Specific items that are safe and things I might not think of to avoid with that student.)

What's everybody's take on Artsonia? I am contemplating starting it up. It seems like a lot of work for not that much return. I have a friend who does it and I swear all she does is upload pictures. ALL THE TIME. I'm not sure I have the time to do that. I just wonder if it is really worth all the effort.

I use Crayola Model Magic with nearly all grades. I love that stuff. But I have had some trouble with my student's sculptures getting cracked as the MM dries. Does anyone have advice on how to prevent this? Do I have to let the pieces dry slower? Is there a way to fix the cracks? Any tips or advice are appreciated! :)

Hi all - I am in need of an excellent quality mechanical sharpener that will last more than a year. I have around $100 to spend - I've burned out 2 X-acto Powerhouse sharpeners this year, and all Boston models that I have tried overheat within 10 minutes. Any suggestions for a long lasting, quick, quiet sharpener?

Are your paint pumps constantly clogging? Mine too! Do you have some ideas for alternative ways to store/dispense paint without the clogging issues? I don’t find that the regular caps work well either, because students end up with way too much paint. Solutions? I’d love to hear them!

If I walked into your high school art classroom what would the atmosphere be? Are the students quiet and working? Are they discussing their projects with each other? Are they working and talking and having fun? Or do they do all of the above and it depends on what day I walk in? :)What do your classes look like?
