The 3rd graders are starting to finish up their weaving projects inspired by Australian Aboriginal dilly bags. This has been a fun introduction to weaving which will come in handy next year when they begin a more complex weaving unit in the 4th grade!
I love this finished relief sculpture by Rachel in 5th grade! She is a very meticulous worker, and it shows.
Classes can earn crayons for their class crayon box when they are in the art room for good behavior. When their crayon boxes are full, they earn an art reward day aka ART-stravaganza. This is a fun day where I put out a variety of art supplies (scrap paper, stencils, texture plates, blocks, and various odds and ends from my art “treasure” box to name a few) for students to use as they please to create a project with no rules. It is a great way to give the students some structured “down time” while still getting them to use their imagination and creativity!
The weather delays have slowed us down a bit when it comes to finishing projects, but you can’t rush perfection!
Congratulations to Lovlea in 4th grade for having her artwork chosen for the state Youth Art Month show in Columbus!! Great job!!
Staying busy on a delay day by putting more artwork in the hallways. 2nd grade dot paintings….
Kindergarten got a lesson in beginners printmaking with this group project. The quote is a Dr. Seuss classic from the book I Can Read with My Eyes Shut.
Had a GREAT turnout at the 3rd grade art show last night!! Thank you to all the friends and families that came out to support the student artists!
That is what the 5th graders are working on with their latest art project. They are works in progress, and I look forward to displaying them in the upcoming weeks!
