Fourth and fifth grade students created a collective series of work to honor veterans for Veterans Day this year.
Students created the Ohio flag.
They also made a flag of the United States.
Students also created a poster for the army, navy , air force, marines and the coast guard.
After drawing the design and tracing it with marker, students added a wash of watercolor paint for the background.
After retracing the poster with marker, students began to use dots of paint in a pointillistic manner.
Every group began adding dots of color to their art work.
Collectively the work began to take shape as dots and colors began to fill in the design.
It was fun to watch the students take ownership of their work as their skills increased.
All of the students were introduced to new art techniques and design ideas as they worked cooperatively on this project.
Here are examples of their work:
Third, fourth and fifth grade students participated in the annual National Fire Safety Poster Contest sponsored by the Willard Fire Department.
Students began designing their posters as they figured out how to tell a visual story.
A lot of thought went into creating their posters.
After completing their designs, students added color.
Colored pencil and marker were employed to complete their posters.
Focus and concentration are required to create a great poster that engages the viewer and tells a story.

Fourth grade students completed their paintings of character words.
After adding finishing touches to their letter paintings, each group discussed their work.
The final step was to add a coat of gloss to their canvas.
Students really enjoyed working cooperatively on this project.
Each class viewed their work at the end of the project.
Everyone participated in a review of their work and the creative process.
Students were proud of the fact their work will be on view in the building for all to see.
Everyone engaged in the learning process for this project.
Maybe you can stop by and see the students’ work once it is hung in the building over the summer break.
Fourth grade students have been working on a lettering project.
Each forth grade class has been working on a character word that will be displayed in the school.
Each class has six groups, and each group is responsible for one of the letters in the word.
Everyone has been busy working on the background and the subject, which is the letter.
Students have been using and learning about complementary colors as they explore masking out the letter they paint.
The project is teaching the students to work cooperatively.
Here are a couple of examples of the students’ work before we begin to add texture to the background of their work.
