Sculptures Inspired by African Myth by Grade K


We read the African myth "Why the Sun and the Moon Live in the Sky" by Elphistone Dayrell.  Students created three sculptures inspired by the story; a moon, a sun and a fish.  Lastly, they decorated a small bag to look like the decorated African homes we saw in the illustrations of the myth.  As well as being fabulous works of art, the bags are also a handy way to transport their sculptures home!





Pattern Necklaces by Grade 1


First graders sculpted a textured pendant and beads in many shapes.  They then strung the necklaces making sure they were the same on both sides (symmetrical!)

We are "Building A Better World" here in the art room by up-cycling all of these bottle caps into art for our beginning-of-the-year lesson.  Thanks to Bula Jean's Boutique (www.facebook.com/bula-jeans-boutique) for a HUGE cap donation.
(We still need more plastic caps, boxes located in the office and outside the art room).

Art Inspired by Wayne Thiebaud by Grade K



Wayne Thiebaud created paintings of all types of scrumptious treats.  We started off with delicious torn-paper ice-cream cone collages and ended with colorful gumball machines drawings...  YUM!
