K - Layered Collage

The Kindergarteners used paint and a variety of materials for collaging. They started with painting. The second day they added collage elements. We were thinking about texture and layers. They turned out as rich and beautiful collages.

2 - Masks - Paper mache

I know you have been waiting to see the amazing second grade masks. Here they are are and they are amazing. They started with an animal and drew a design of what they wanted their mask to look like. They used basket-making reeds to create an armature for their mask. I was very proud of their willingness to dive into challenging waters with the armature. They then put on a layer of paper mache. The concluded by painting their masks.

1st - Alien Planet Exhbition

It has been a long time coming, but here it is: photos of the 1st graders exhibiting their alien planet artwork. They showed their landscape painting, space ship, space suit, alien life-form, and all the sketches and drawing from the project. We invited parents and other students. It was fun to see the kids light up and tell you all about the minute details of their invented worlds and technology.

7 - a Giant Maze Collaboration

This giant maze was conceived and completed as an independent project of two seventh grade artists. Each worked on their respective sides of the door and connected their independent work into one very large collaborative maze. It is gorgeous and quite tricky to complete. They used blue painter's tape which has a striking blue quality as well as peels harmlessly off the wall. Great work guys.
