Students were to select a region within the designated hemisphere to complete their research. They picked a partner and created a presentation about their region and people group based on specific questions concerning language, clothing, food, religion, social organization, art and literature. They were challenged to create a piece in the traditional style of the people/region they researched. This has been so much fun to see them problem solve and creating with so many varied mediums! I'm super proud of their work!
Each nine weeks our 7th and 8th graders are challenged to complete 3 outside drawings with assigned topic. This last one for this nine weeks was something with wheels. I have loved the creativity that the students responded with. Drawings have included everything from spinning wheels and roller skates to unicycles and desk chairs. 8th graders Adrianna and Hanna completed these very creative images!
Teaching art is my passion and my students are the reason I love what I do! What a privilege to work with our young artists and witness their excitement and growth throughout the year! I'm looking forward to starting this year because of the enthusiasm expressed by students and parents alike at our open house!
