Week 15 Art with a HeART

Next week we will be collecting new mittens, hats, and scarves for our Share the Warmth community event hosted by the art department. Please help by donating new items. If we reach our goal of collecting 60 items, students will have a chance to win an "Art with a HeART" gift basket filled with wonderful art supplies...

1st grade students completed their 3d tepee and fire this week. Students made their tepee using a brown lunch bag stuffed with newspaper. They tied the top off their bag using yarn and beads. Next students glued their tepee to a black sheet of paper and then created their 3d fire. Students enjoyed making their 3d art and they all commented on how nice everyone's tepee and fire turned out.

3rd grade students completed another "Fall" project this week. Our focus was on texture, so we went with a dried corn husk as our theme (to go with our Novemeber American Indian and Fall theme). Students created these using their color choice. 

4th grade continued to finish their "Changing Leaves" art this week and will continue to complete it next week.

5th grade - Pictures with my iphone do not do justice to these amazing pieces of art. Students drew on black paper, traced their drawing with glue and then colored them with colored pencils. These "Fall Harvest" pictures took some time to complete, but well worth the time and effort.

Have a great Thanksgiving (turkey day) and enjoy the few extra days off from school and work :)
