So much ART! 

I went into school on my day off today to hang artwork! I actually love hanging artwork…it’s the taking down part that is not so fun. I am always amazed at the talent of my little student-artists!

 I believe this is becoming an annual project with my kindergarten classes. I use painters tape to write the words on each piece of paper. Each kindergarten class is assigned a color (yellow, magenta, and turquoise this year). They use stamps, sponges, and rollers to cover the paper. I pull the tape off when dry, and VOILÀ, a beautiful art piece ready for the wall.

   1st grade “flying” self-portraits inspired by Faith Ringgold’s book Tar Beach. The city buildings are made out of paint chips. The background is made using shaving cream and paint to create our swirly sky.

Hard workers 

Kindergarten (Evearitt’s class) take some time to make a big group drawing while Mrs. Vanni finishes cleaning up today’s messy Dr. Seuss project. Can’t wait to post the final product!  
 3rd grade/Schultz’s class are glazing their clay project. Hope to have them on display sometime next week!

Dream Jars 

Students in Mrs. Rentner’s  5th grade class finished their clay dream jars. We talked about what artist Faith Ringgold meant when she wrote, “Anyone can fly. All you got to do is try.” We determined it was about following your dreams and reaching your goals, so we created a special dream jar with the student’s face as the lid. Love them!
