Greetings! Here are a few spring updates!
Third graders worked on creating their own mathematical tessellations after studying the mind blowing tessellations of M.C. Escher. Students learned about the angles that the shapes make, and how the patterns can go on infinitely! Here is an example of an M.C. Escher tessellation, and some of the students' work:
p.s. The third graders are currently working on a REALLY exciting animation project! Check back for more!
4th and 5th graders have been studying printmaking in its various forms. They have created some very colorful prints using the multi-step processes we've learned. (Did you learn about it at S.T.E.A.M. night?)
We had a clay month, and I sure did enjoy firing up our brand new kiln! I had loads and loads of creative sculptures from almost all of our grades, including these delicious looking food sculptures by 4th graders!
And, last but not least, we celebrated our district wide Visions Art Show last week. It is always difficult to choose artwork to showcase in any art show (I just wish I could show them all!) So, congratulations to those selected and not selected. We've all worked hard this year!
p.s. I've been working on another embroidery drawing of my home studio. What do you think?
