This week we dove right into our first clay project with 3rd grade. Students have been learning about the rainforest, and today they created rainforest animal sculptures. Students started by creating a pinch pot and then adding legs, a head, tail and other features. Here are some of the creations from Mrs. Brown's class.

1st grade students are continuing their study of lines in art. This week we looked at a portrait drawn by Alexander Calder. We used his face as inspiration for creating our own line drawings of people.
4th graders are traveling around the world through art this year. Currently, we are learning about Kenya and the animals that live there in the wild. We are also learning about the Masai tribe, a small nomadic people group that lives near the animals in Kenya. Students created collages of Kenyan animals.

3rd graders have started the year learning about Henri Rousseau, a French artist, known for his jungle paintings. We have been learning about jungles and rainforests and the animals that live there. We read a book about Rouseau and also read The Great Kapok Tree, by Lynn Cherry. Students made sketches of rainforest animals and listened to rainforest music for inspiration. Here are some of the collages from Mrs. Korth's 3rd grade class:
