The 3rd graders have been learning about artist, Marc Chagall. We've been using transparency paper and permanent markers to create a faux stained glass piece that show memories from each student's life. Chagall often portrays his people floating around to show how happy they are. Likewise, students have created themselves floating in their artwork. We will hang these pieces on the library windows so that the light can shine through, just like real stained glass.
The 2nd graders have begun a unit on Under the Sea. They have been making sea collages. We read the book Mr. Seahorse by Eric Carle and then drew and painted seahorses. The cafeteria workers have kindly been saving the apple crates that come with the apples they serve for lunch. (I've been saving these up in my closet for literally two years. Finally, I had enough for all of 2nd grade!) We then glued the sea horse to the apple crate and added seaweed, tissue paper and shells.
