Artists look at real objects found in nature to inspire our paintings, drawings and sculptures.
The first graders were excited to to share that the human body has 206 bones in it. They collaborated to create this bigger than them skeleton collage.
Today we looked and listened for birds in the garden. If your class was quiet, we were able to see many birds. If we were too loud the birds flew away long before we could see them. We took our ideas into the art room to make Bird Collages and Sculptures. We were able to find things all over the classroom to make our art…just like the birds would be making a nest!
Thank You to Americor, Huron Pines, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts for attending our Compost Kids Earth Day Event. We sanded and painted 10 benches, painted a brick wall, planted 70 trees, built a new compost fence, raked and raked and raked! Our school yard looks great and we are very thankful for all the volunteers that came locally and from all over the state. Volunteering together makes a big difference to a lot of people!
Garden season begins today! Please bring your coat to every class with Mrs. Merdzinski because we will be going outside to look for signs of spring this week! We will be blogging about it, reading garden books in the library and making art in the art room! What did you see outside this week
