Over the next few weeks the Artroom will be filled with angels, cardinals, snowmen and much more as we gear up for Christmas!
Over the past weeks students took up sewing needles, creating handmade sketchbooks in grade 5 and designing, sewing and tagging "Ugly" dolls in grade 6. Grade 6 also was introduced to the graffiti art of Keith Haring and created their own Haring-like figures.
We watched a couple of wonderful videos about Native American art before grade 3 created their own Winter Counts in response to the art of the Lakota People. Grade 2 wove a star in the middle of their own Dream Catchers and added beads and feathers to complete their creations.
Kindergarten used everyday objects and recyclables to create exciting Found Object Sculptures. In grade 1 we used clay to create pinch pots. After the pots dried they used primary an mixed secondary colors to paint them.
Grade 4 created a scribble film (drawn with sharpies on film leader), part of which can be seen on our sbaaartroom YouTube channel. (If you know of a 16mm projector we can borrow for a day we will be able to watch our entire animation. Our's is broken.) They are now creating flip books on our classroom iPad minis.
These are just a few of art projects students have been working on. Please remember to check out all the amazing art at Artsonia!
