Premio Dardos: Award for Creative Bloggers

Hello from San Diego!

I opened my computer today and found a note from Elizabeth at the wonderful Dream Painters blog. She nominated K-6 Art for a Premio Dardos.

Premio Dardos Award

This is a virtual award sent as a ‘gift’ from one blogger to another as “recognition for the creativity, effort and dedication” we each put  into our blog. The award originated in Spain around 2008-2009 and has been sent from blogger to blogger ever since.

To accept the award, you simply

  1. Link back to the person who nominated you
  2. Display the award icon and
  3. Nominate others whose blogs you admire for these qualities.

Thanks so much Elizabeth! I am a big fan of Dream Painters. Elizabeth is so positive and enthusiastic. I appreciate the gift.

It is really hard to pick just a few from all the FABULOUS art ed blogs I follow. I’m going to go with the ones I visit frequently. Here they are in alpha order:

  • Miss at A Faithful Attempt. Miss has taught at different school around the world, and her projects reflect her travels. Plus she has great step-by-step photos.
  • Ted at Art with Mr. E.  Among his other great qualities, Ted is really welcoming to all the new art ed bloggers who join this community.
  • Tricia at Dryden Art. Tricia is a trailblazer in terms of using technology in the elementary art room, and she shares all her resources with her readers.
  • Mollie at Kids Art Market. This is a really well-written, straightforward blog that details the teaching process of each pre-K – 8th grade project.
  • Princess Artypants blogs from an international school in Saudi Arabia. Her projects are really creative, and include 3D.
  • Anderson at Sala de Arte. Anderson blogs from his art room in Brazil. His projects are very creative, and he puts a lot of effort into photographing them and writing them up. I don’t know of any other art ed bloggers in Brazil.
  • Don at shine brite zamorano. Don’s blog is unique – he creates projects based on the work of contemporary artists and illustrators. And he always emphasizes the elements of art in his projects. The man gets 5-6 year olds to include value in their work.
  • Phyl at There’s a Dragon in My Artroom. Phyl has a wide variety of projects on her blog, including a lot of 3D such as papier-mâché and cardboard sculpture.
  • Joanna at We Heart Art. I have taught several of Joanna’s art project – they were very successful.  I keep returning for her cheerful, do-able projects.

Wishing all of you a relaxing end of year and happy start to 2013!
