art room bulletin boards

UPDATE: see a year's worth of // facebook bulletin boards //

It's August!
Which means school will be starting soon.
I'm trying to enjoy the last few days of summer, but I know once I start having school nightmares I need to get in the classroom and get productive.
Hence my visit into my room today.

Today I tackled most of the bulletin boards.
I must say I am loving the Facebook board which was inspired by this pin.
First I selected 10 artists. One for each month (August-May)
I started by sorting some of my art prints.
Then I googled each artist and found them a "Profile Picture"
I wrote each artist's name and their "about" information onto a piece of poster board.
Found a brief biography for under their profile picture.
Put some of their artwork up in one of their photo albums.
And then I was so obsessed I made a Wall with a few status updates, comments, and likes.
Not gonna lie, I had a lot of fun making this.
I am anticipating it will be a hit with the kiddos.

I also made this bulletin board from this pin.
Now all I have to do is finish my personal bulletin board and the safe seat bulletin board.
But, who knows, sitting at the pool may win out.


  1. Very nice on the Facebook bulletin board. I had that one pinned. I already did an artist of the month board. This will make it more interesting for the kids. Love to see how you did yours.

  2. I have a bunch of bulletin board ideas I pinned this summer also! Now I have to just choose which ones I want to use!

  3. This is such an awesome idea! You did a great job.

  4. I love this idea and I think I'll def be using it!!

  5. I hope you don't mind. I have posted a link to this post on my blog for art bulletin boards. jan
