As the 2014-2015 school year dawns my first task as an art teacher is to build and awaken the dormant creative spirit that lies within all my students.
Our first project in kindergarten is to explore building with shapes.
Students are given a variety of shapes and building materials as they process to create sculptural inventions.
Students have been very inventive with their creations.
First grade students have been using a different building material that is based upon squares and rectangles.
This building medium has required the students to view construction from a cubistic standpoint.
Students will use these introductory sessions of building in their creative explorations this school year.
Art has a way of engaging the whole learning experience as students will carry their creative experience into the rest of their school day.
I hope that you will follow us this year on our creative journey.
The students are excited to learn, and maybe their experience will inspire you!
