I've updated the class expectations page to include the district wide "RAMS" rubric. All classes have started new projects. At East Meadow, fourth and sixth grade are working with color and fifth grade is creating art inspired by Aboriginal Art. At West Street, kindergarten is finishing up overlapping shapes and will be starting an observation drawing of Indian Corn, first grade is creating soft sculpture pumpkins, second grade is finishing their scribble drawings and getting ready to start their fall still lifes of pumpkins and gourds, and third grade is working on "haunted houses." We looked at and discussed Victorian architecture and are now drawing our own Victorian houses.
Here's some pictures of work the students were creating while I was on maternity leave.
Kindergarten learned about lines and created a line resist using oil pastels and watercolor paints.
