Golden Scarabs

The 1st graders are looking at symbols of Ancient Egypt and created these scarabs using model magic in a foam core tile before painting hold. They will be part of a larger project, but look pretty cool all grouped together!

Blue Hippos and Mummies

For those 5th graders finishing their paintings early, they went back to working on their sarcophagus side project. They got to make a model magic person to mummify with linen strips aka masking tape!The 1st graders in Mrs. Ison’s clas were ahead of the other classes, so they got to make cute model magic blue hippos after we learned about “William” the blue faience hippo from Ancient Egypt.

OAEA 2017

There are so many awesome things about hanging out with art teachers at an art education conference….presenting with colleagues and friends, making hands on art projects, learning new things at sessions, meeting new people, checking out art vendors, and themed dinners! I was excited to see two of Hill View’s state art show pieces on display at the conference! Congrats to Isaiah and Lillian!
