Subway Art

As you all know, I'm a bit obsessed with Pinterest...shocking I know! Lol :) My latest obsession on Pinterest is called Subway Art. I'll show you my latest pins (I had to make a board just for Subway Art!)


How fabulous is this?!?!


I could definitely see this in the classroom!


I also have pinned ones for holidays:




Ok, so now you get the idea of what Subway Art is!  Now, Cricut has a cartridge that I am REALLY wanting called Word Collage:


This has stuff for baby girls and boys, some holidays, and some other stuff.

Looking at this gave me a few ideas. One of them is I could creat my own Subway Art with or without this cartridge, by just typing in words/phrases using any of my other cartiridges and put them all together on a cardstock. For instance, my friend is having a baby boy and on the cartridge is cute, but there is one on Pinterest I've seen that I could recreate:



My other possibly brilliant idea, is that you could do this for any theme you are doing in your classroom. So for an ocean unit, for example, it could say waves, seal, dolphins, whales, starfish, etc. Oh this opens up so many possibilities!!! And I could see making this with wordle...so keep your eyes peeled, because I think that I'll be making them for freebies. Do you think this is a good idea? I also think that I'll be making a teacher one for the prize when I get 100 followers (only 31 away!)

  9. Great post...I pinned a few of the art posters. I'm wondering what software is used to make the art. I guess I could google the question.

    Thanks again,
    Happy New Year

  11. Hi Pat! You can use Wordle or Tagxedo for basic stuff. As for adding little pics into it, I'm not sure, so I'm going to use my Cricut to make that stuff and possibly the words too :)
