Kindergarteners have been continuing with their unit on weather art. Recently they created self-portraits of themselves standing under umbrellas in the rain.
Kindergarteners also learned about pattern and texture earlier in the year. We finally had time to put together the clay pendant necklaces that they made. We worked on creating patterns with our beads.
3rd graders have been learning about art that tells a story. They created Matryoshkas, or nesting dolls.

It was great to see all of you who joined us at Literacy Night yesterday. In the art room we were creating mosiac stepping stone tiles to be placed outside the school by the library windows. We used broken pieces of dishes and set them in place with cement. Thanks so much to Mrs. Darnell for helping us with this last night, and thank you to Target for providing grant money to make this project possible. The mosaics turned out beautifully!
