Our first project back after Christmas break was creating snowflakes.
Students learned the steps to basic paper folding for a kirigami snowflake.
This project required the students to focus, follow directions and learn to control the paper as an art medium.
After folding the paper for a four point snowflake, students explored cutting out various shapes to create their snowflake.
As students reviewed their skills through the process of creating the paper sculptures, they grew confident in their abilities.
Everyone was happy with the skills they developed through the making of snowflakes.
Art class allows students the opportunity to combine learning many subjects and using many new tools and skills to build a holistic learner.
