At our school carnival this year we had a teacher auction to raise money. Students placed bids on teachers that they would want to spend an evening with. It was up to us teachers to come up with an activity to do with our students on that evening. First grade came up with "Painting With a Twist". This fun place walks you through a chosen painting from start to finish, and you get to walk away with a masterpiece all in one class! All paintings turn out AMAZING and it is cool to see the personal twist that everyone puts on their work of art. The painting we chose was called "Reach For the Stars" and we had an awesome time with our winning students as we each painted a picture side by side. I highly recommend spending an afternoon or evening at one of their locations! See if there is one near you!
