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!
The 4th graders are doing weaving a a little differently this year. We created our own looms out of cardboard in the shape of cats inspired by Ancient Egyptian cat art. I love the way they look all standing together! We attached an extra piece of scrap cardboard on the back so they stand on their own like a frame would.
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.
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!
