Organized Chaos

Whenever I am asked to describe my classroom - I generally chuckle and say "Organized Chaos".  My room is busy with color, kids, supplies, and energy!  The art room is often in a state of organized chaos - it is chaos that is under control and has purpose.  The first graders were working on a project today that was inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser - paper everywhere, glue, scissors, pencils, oil pastels - it was all everywhere and I couldn't help but to smile.  It was a picture perfect moment - everything an art room should be -- busy, cluttered, creative, productive -- if only I could have captured the sounds as well.
