Kindergarten and first grade students have been exploring the shamrock shape.
Students first cut out a shamrock stencil shape.
After cutting out the stencil, students transferred the shape to green construction paper to make their own shamrock.

Again students used their stencils to create their shamrock cartoon characters.
Everyone was excited to use their imaginations as they made their shamrock people.

Fifth grade students have been exploring collage through the medium of digital photography.
Students began with taking self portraits in black and white on a neutral background.
Students photographed their partners in sections, focusing on parts of the face instead of creating a whole portrait.
The next step was to look at all of the images they had to work with on their collage.
After viewing the work of artist David Hockney and others who created collages from digital portraits, the students set to work on their own creations.
Everyone had different ideas on how to process their collage.
Most students had fun with this open-ended collage project.
The final step was to glue down their images onto poster board. The process was much like creating a puzzle of themselves.
Here are several examples of the students’ work which are now on display.
