Welcome Coyotes!

This is the place to find out about the art world in and around Fort Worth especially for the parents, students and friends of Carlson. I will also post links for contests, exhibits, classes and things that might be of interest to art students and their families.

I am always collecting ideas for projects that can be done at home, whether they be art experiences or craft ideas. Because the structure of our school day doesn't allow for as much in depth work as I would enjoy...or the students would enjoy, for that matter...I hope you will try some of the cool ideas I have found. Also, if YOU have cool ideas that you think other students would be interested in, please feel free to send them to me to post here.

Like Chess?

Fourth grade students in Michelle Landy's class are making a chess set crafted in clay. They have been measuring, cutting, glazing and firing tiles to make the chess board as well as hand-building, sculpting, glazing and firing the chess pieces. The theme of the set is "Carlson coyotes."

Each piece has its own unique character and the students are loving every minute of watching them change with each firing. This board will be offered for sale at the Carlson auction on Saturday night.
