2 - Monsters Invade Historical Charlottesville

Oh no! Monsters somehow invaded Charlottesville in the past. Oh, you don't believe me? Well, here are the images to prove it. No, I don't know where they came from, or how they somehow traveled in time and yet still show up in these archival images. Stop asking such silly questions. The second graders discovered these groundbreaking images when they were researching using ink on old photos to alter the intent of the original artwork. Yeah, I know. It is unbelievable, but the proof is before your very eyeballs.

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.
