Working it Out
It has been interesting to see students use symbols to express ideas and experiences they have had as well as aspirations they have for their futures. I have also enjoyed seeing students adapt materials based on what they have learned from each other and through the various demonstrations shown in class.
This week we introduced batik, scratch art, and using a graphite base layer to complete an image.
Lewis and Clark
It was fun to learn new things and work with the other Art teachers on the district on initiatives for the school year!
The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are just around the corner and I am looking forward to having students meet the challenge again and submit works that reflect their ideas and skills before 2016 ends!
