First graders are drawing the Statue of Liberty. We look at LOTS of views of her on Google Maps. They kids get the best sense of what an island is and how she really looks. Plus, there are even pictures of the interior, so they feel like they get to go inside and look around. This is the conclusion to our trip around the world.
Second graders are using the chalk pastels to draw a hot air balloon picture. We refocused on perspective and depth. I also reviewed how to blend colors together. Today's class did such a beautiful job with the grass that I must remember to show other groups exactly what I showed them.
Third graders are creating the COOLEST mask. They are learning all about the Egyptian pharaohs and different symbols and their meanings. I love how they are turning out so far. Will post pictures next rotation when the kids are finished.
Fifth graders are creating pinch pot bowls. We are in the early stages. They will melt glass chips in the interior to create another layer to the inside of their bowls. Here are some pictures of some of their work as it is drying.
