7th Grade Ceramic and Glass Angels are loaded in the kiln and will be ready to add glass as soon as we return from break!
8th Grade Torn Paper Portraits are now on display in the Art Room. I will be moving these to the main hallway when we return from break. They take my breathe away they are so amazing! So much time and attention to detail went into these. It blows my mind that these were done by 8th graders.
6th Graders are continuing to work on their "House in the Night" scratch art project. Their focus is on attention to contrasts, textures, and the use of accent color to add emphasis. I have contacted the illustrator of the book "The House in the Night" in hopes of sharing our projects with her and getting feedback about her process and the students work in an open dialogue (either via Skype or email interactions). Hopefully I will hear from her over the break and we can explore this project a bit deeper this year.
4th Grade Christmas Mission-style Southwestern Churches are almost done. The majority of students completed their projects today (pics to follow after break). Students colored in oil pastel and then used baby oil and q-tips to blend the oil pastels together. I am sad this project is over as the art room has been smelling amazing the last few weeks while the students were working on this project. Here are some of the projects in-progress:
