Studio Artwork Notebook update

Remember back in April when I visited Jody and her Piano Cottage?  In her waiting room area, she had a blank notebook lying around for students to draw artwork.

After being inspired by Jody, I ordered a blank, hardcover notebook from Amazon for my own waiting room area. It has been a few months now, and I thought I would share a peek at some of the artwork students have created!

Yes, even my cat Coda made it into the notebook!  :)

  1. I love it! I put a whiteboard in my waiting area and called in a Genius board for the students to doodle and leave messages (idea from Paul Coates and Calming the Practice Monster) but this is such a lovely keepsake idea! Thanks for sharing it along!

  2. Another idea I want to steal…I love my students’ artwork. In fact, the recital cover of one of my students from last year is still displayed on my piano. (OK, so he did write I Love You on the front.)

    Yes, I always have my students design a cover for our recital program. A friend of mine selects the winner. I then have a separate program made for each student with his own artwork on the cover.

  3. I love this idea! I have saved artwork, cards, etc. from students over the years, but it would be fun to have drawings and comments in one place. I know the waiting siblings would enjoy another activity. And great idea, Robbin, to have the students design the recital program cover. I think I will be “borrowing” both of these ideas! Thanks!

  4. I borrowed the same idea, but it didn’t work out so well for me! Students were leaving the colored pencils and all scattered and messy in the waiting area so I stopped putting them out :(
