The 5th graders started a new project which requires them to trace their initial designs over and over until they have a cool radial name design! Here they are in progress! #amazingthingshappenhere
The 4th graders are starting a new project inspired by the country and culture of Turkey. Students choose a base. Then, they fold their next layer into fours and cut a design–like when you make snowflakes! I always say, “Cut a shape, skip a space, cut a shape.” Then, glue down. The next layer is cut more intricately, then glued down. The paper I’m using is 6″x18″. The final layer goes in the center (students will do this step next week.) and is a smaller size: 6″x6″.
Spent my evening with two art teacher friends at a felting workshop where we used alpaca wool from a local alpaca farm to crest some fun art projects! I’m hooked! Check out http://www.sunnymeadealpacas.com for more info! Started off with my shades of green background.
