Third graders have really enjoyed making "Whoville" in Art class. Each student has a long piece of paper to fill with Who houses and trees. We even made the grinch peeking over the town. This has been a great project to inspire the third graders during these long school days before break!

African Sculptures

Fourth graders have been learning about Africa in Art class. We practiced making African masks and African textile designs and combined those ideas to make our African sculptures!

Charley Harper Cardinals

I love the artist Charley Harper. His beautiful images of animals and birds are the perfect subject for elementary students. Here are some examples of cardinals that the first graders have made in art class.
