Art club- ceiling tiles

When I started this project with art club, I had no idea it would take off the way it did. The kids are painting ceiling tiles for the classrooms. I wanted to get one for each classroom over the next few years but the teachers love them so much, we pretty much have to do one for each teacher within the next few weeks. Teachers were stopping me in the hallway and emailing me to ask if they could get one. I am glad something as simple as a painted ceiling tile can have such a positive effect on the atmosphere of the school and can make people so happy.
Here are the kids at work...

  1. I'm getting ready to do this with 5th graders...42 tiles one per table...how did you store them while they were in the process of painting them?

    1. When they finished for the day (art club was at the very end of the day) they left them on a table or propped around the room. When I came in the next day, I moved them to a corner of the room (stacked vertically) until they were ready to paint the next day.
