My name is Aly, and I blog at artisandesarts. I live in Ottawa, Canada, where I am a French teacher to a wonderful grade 5/6 class. In addition to that, I teach art daily to K-6, while my students are in their English class. I have never considered myself an artist, but have always been a huge crafter. I absolutely love all kinds of crafts, from weaving to sewing to paper-cutting.
Over at my blog, I post all of the art projects that I do with my art classes. I try to include step by steps, and sometimes I’ll even make a video how-to. As well, I post a lot of DIY’s that I do in my spare time (especially during Summer break!)
My favorite art project that I have done with my students is my hand dyed paper with silhouettes (done with grade 5/6 students, but the concept could be applied to many other projects!).
My favorite DIY was for my sister-in-law’s baby shower bomb or my Lego Red Sox costume (so hot inside the head!)
