Dia De Los Muertos Prints
Students studied the printmaker Jose Posada and learned about the printmaking process. We learned about the holiday Dia de los Muertos and created calaveras using many different patterns and designs.
Andy Goldsworthy Radial Collaborations
5th Grade created radial designs inspired by Andy Goldsworthy using found objects from nature. We were not allowed to use any type of tool or art material to alter or hold our projects!
Radial Leaf Paintings
Students continued their study of radial designs and drew leaves from observation. Then then used their drawings as templates to create a radial design. They then painted their leaves using analogous color families.
Snowmen at Night
Students read the short story "Snowmen at Night" and created their own snowy scenes. We focused on creating forms using highlight and shadow and blending our chalk pastels.
