The 2nd graders are learning how to blend colors with oil pastels while working on their 3D butterflies…made out of pizza trays recycled from the cafeteria!
Here is a sneak peak at the 3rd grade group project. They are working on giant flowers that will be on display at Hawk Heaven in April. The smaller flowers are part of a large mural. Flower power!
As students finish up their work, they take a few minutes to do some doodling on large paper I rolled out into the floor. This is just a different way to get in some drawing practice, and the students enjoy being away from their assigned seats to create some art. Grades K and 2nd are working on butterfly doodles (drawing ideas and examples are on the smart board), 1st and 5th are working in bird doodles, and 3rd and 4th (those finished weaving) are working on flowers.
Below are two fun books that belong to my oldest daughter. I have also bought them as gifts for others as well. They are art teacher approved!
It may look a little messy right now, but soon these cardboard pizza trays (recycled from the cafeteria) will be turned into beautiful bird sculptures by the 5th graders!
Ladies and gentleman, we have a finished 4th grade weaving!
Whipped up a quick poster for the upcoming 13 ABC basketball game!
Read the book Basil’s Birds to the kindergarten classes this week, and we sculpted our own little birds out of model magic. Cute!
I have decided I am going to hang every single radial design relief sculpture made by the 5th graders because they are so colorful, and they make the halls look like spring! Here are some more finished ones…
