The following games are good sponge activities to use between lessons:
Color – A Color Matching Game
Shape Type – A letter shaping game
Bezier – A game to master the pen tool
Kern Type – A kerning game
The Boolean Game – I have no clue how to play this. If you figure it out, let me know!

I am working on developing a stained glass unit with my advanced art students. I plan to ask the artist Betti L. to come do a demonstration and be a visiting artist for a period in my classroom.
You will need glass scorers, running pliers, glass grinders, grossing pliers, copper foil or lead cane (I recommend the copper foil) soldering irons and 60/40 solder. Also safety glasses, stained glass, and lots of band-aids.
The beginner kit for $229. on Delphi Glass includes:
- Gryphon Gryphette Grinder
- Studio 100-watt soldering iron with built in temperature control
- 8 piece Kokomo French Cobblestone glass pack about 8″ x 8″ ea.
- 3″ Round bevel
- Supercutter dry wheel glass cutter
- Delphi Stained Glass Made Easy DVD
- Breaker/grozer pliers
- Running pliers
- 60/40 Solder
- Copper foil
- Flux pen
- Marking pen
- Safety glasses

Somewhere I have a Dipity Timeline, but I can’t find it, nor can I find my login — grrr. This site isn’t searchable very well. It may be at: http://www.dipity.com/nshsartroom/
I did find a Smarthistory timeline.
Wonderful art puzzles to use on the Smartboard to use at the begining or end of class brought to you by Zambambozo.
My blog crashed a while back and I am in the middle of wading through my sql database trying to clean up the code that several of my plugins put there. It is a mess and it will take some time.
