On-going Projects

Kindergarten: These students are finishing up a project in which they created a 3-dimensional fish using paper and yarn. They created texture and fish scales through patterns and shapes. Kindergarteners have also been working on a clay project as they manipulated a slab of clay to create texture.

First Grade: Students are working on an abstract cactus. They painted it with watercolor paint, added patterns for an abstract effect, and are finishing it off with paper triangles as the cactus needles.

Second Grade: Second graders just created a non-objective background using white paint and chalk pastels. They drew a lizard to add to the background, which was also decorated with chalk pastels. Finally, they attached the lizard to their background by gluing cardboard under the lizard to give the appearance of dimension.

Third Grade: These students have studied Park Guell and Antoni Gaudi in Spain. This park is decorated with mosaics by Gaudi. They are currently working on paper mosaics.

Fourth Grade: Students finished up a paper, quilt square. They are moving on to study Gustav Klimt and paint a patchwork quilt with watercolor paint.

Fifth Grade: Fifth graders are studying Canadian Animals and are drawing their own example of an abstract Canadian animal by reflecting on Native and Traditional Canadian Art.
