Second grade students created neon flowers in the manner of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Students were divided into groups and, after viewing work by the artist Georgia O’Keeffe, began drawing large flowers.
Every group worked cooperatively.
After drawing their flowers, students moved to marker to enhance their pencil work.
The students worked very well together to complete this stage of their images.
Next students employed neon crayons.
Each group decided which areas to color and not to color with crayon.
The second graders worked hard to add rich color with the neon crayons.
The final step was to add liquid watercolor.
Students used related colors and worked to dry the remaining paint away with towels.
Here are some examples of their images:
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.
Sixth grade students recently completed their bug project.
Everyone was busy adding finishing touches to their 3D bugs made from cylinders.
Most of the students tried many innovative methods in the building of their projects.
Many students inspired each other with their building ideas.
Students became very thoughtful towards the completion of this project on the look of their bugs.
Although slow to engage with the project, the students finally found their vision for creating 3D bugs.
Here are some examples of their bugs:
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.
Fourth grade students began their painting project after Christmas break.
Each group chose a character word that will decorate our new school.
After tracing their letter, each group began painting the background with the color of their choosing.
This required each group to work cooperatively on the project.
The students really enjoy working with paint and learning new methods in art.
The next step was to mask out their letter with tape and paint it in with a complementary color.
It’s been great to watch the students learn to work together in the painting process. In the next step students will add texture to the backgrounds of their paintings.
Fifth grade students were busy before Christmas break creating Christmas portraits for presents.
Students worked in teams of two to create a portrait of each other for their project.

Fifth graders also learned the importance of a solid background for a portrait.
Everyone enjoyed learning to use the new technology of digital photography and creating a gift for others.
