There is still time to visit the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York. The Keith Haring exhibit will be on display until October 11, 2021. Meanwhile, on the walls of Chittenango Middle School, my students’ artwork is currently on display. It took a lot of heavy-duty stickies to get them to stay up – the tile was not particularly cooperative.
The Wild Animal Park is right around the corner from where I work and – wow – I had no idea! It is a zoo experience with a petting zoo and animal farm, as well as a safari component.
My friend Elaine is in town from Florida, so we decided to explore The Wild on Friday evening. It was a lot of fun. The space is clean. The animals are well cared for and happy, especially the giraffe. So fun! It was just this incredible gem of an experience!
The Wild is located at 7621 Lakeport Road, Chittenango, New York 13037. Call (315) 510-3347 for more information.
My B-day Art-8 students (Chittenango Middle School) created these clay masks. We used Sax Colorburst glazes. They have silica flakes that pop in the kiln creating confetti-like effects.
I offered students thirteen different colors and asked that they use at least six, making sure to place three coats of glaze on the mask for each color. It was tricky because the glazes transform in the kiln – there is that allowance for serendipity that doesn’t work if you are a control freak, but totally does if you are experimental.
I added a wire to the back so they can hang on the wall. Students took them home today. I miss them already!

This year’s Doodle for Google competition has now closed. All entries had to be postmarked yesterday. These images are among the many I submitted – 8th graders from Chittenango Middle School. The winner receives $30,000, and $50,000 in technology for their school.
The theme of this year’s contest is “I show kindness by….”
Do we have a winner?
