What Did We Do Today? A Word from Some of Our Teachers …

{Painting} We built on color-mixing knowledge and created beautiful “cardboard canvases” yesterday. Today, we used painter’s tape to make tree designs on our work from yesterday before covering them with another coat of paint. We’re looking forward to seeing the results when the tape is removed!

{Drawing} We worked on our tree banner for the sanctuary and started a cubism face project, inspired by our artist of the day Pablo Picasso.

{Nature Arts} We used leaves to create all sorts of animals – including a cute koala climbing a eucalyptus tree.

{Sculpture} We painted the final details on our paper mache turtles and painted our clay projects.

{Pre-K/Kinder} We did a sticky nature project, in which we created shapes and pictures using items found in nature. We also created “quilted” banners by gluing fabric squares on felt bases.

What Did We Do Today? A Word from Some of Our Teachers …

{Dance} We reviewed our lyrical dance that we learned yesterday and began working on a new hip-hop dance that we will finish tomorrow.

{Fiber Arts} We began this week learning about three basic methods of creating fabric from fibers: weaving, knitting/crocheting and felting. We made banners using burlap for the base and each student created their own design using felt, ribbons, pipe cleaners, pompoms, cording, beads and bells.  We also looked at how to pull some of the burlap fibers from the sides to create visual interest just by using blank space.

{Hand Chimes} We have been working on ringing techniques and practicing our songs for the closing program!

{Pre-K/Kinder} We used mixed media to create decorative sticks and used finger paint and painter’s tape to create cross art.
