Welcome to Mrs. Schellenberg's Class

Welcome to Wonder Time Arts; Where Art and Nature Meets

"Wonder Time Arts " is our class-world and Cafe. It is filled with all things wonderful....artists, creativity, self-expression, Visual Thinking, nature, beauty, learning, music, dancing, exploring, poetry, history, storytelling, puppetry, reading, writing, journal keeping, engineering, Lego building, daily sketching, day-dreaming, and much more.  We are all about community, friendship, and of course- nature and art.


I have carefully curated lessons and videos to use in the art classroom, and at home. I felt they had great value as well as highly engaging for the children. As my website is free, I am not profiting from the sharing of those materials, nor am I taking credit for them. I am just thankful that I am able to share them with you.   The lessons and handouts that were created by me, I also freely share.  I encourage my visitors to live each day with greatness and gratitude. And remember, each and everyone of you is a masterpiece. 

We might be at home...but we still can create! Let's make art. Let's make something beautiful! Remember no matter where you are, at school or at home, you are a masterpiece.

SOAR into SPRING! Watch and be inspired by this Award-Winning Animated Film. It is not just the birds that fly.

"Soar" was created as  Alyce Tzue's thesis project in school. Created by a first-time filmmaker, it caught the eye of the world, and I guess you could say it truly soared. The video has won many awards. It certainly inspired us,  Wonder Time Artists. We hope it encourages you to dream, create, and tell your story. Just click on the picture to watch the film.
