If you’ve visited the cafeteria this past week you will notice the walls are covered with beautiful paintings in the style of Wang Yani like sneaky monkeys (gr 1) , awakened lions (gr 2) , schools of fish and beautify bamboo trees (gr 5). After watching a video of her, students used sumi brushes with simple brush strokes to create their paintings. The beautiful paintings have been a big hit! In k2 we are working on finishing up our painted panda bears. The children opted to add bamboo trees to the background and will be able to display them soon.
In grade 3 the geodesic domes are mostly completed with 3 groups finishing this week. We used more masking tape than we ever thought possible! What fun!
In grade 5 we got a chance to finger paint with the iPads. Students used Doodle Buddy and learned how to create color gradients. We printed the paintings wallet sized and have displayed them in the hallway.
Grade 6 has been creating mandalas and they are absolutely beautiful. I am very impressed by their concentration and design skills.
