5th and 6th Grade

We have recently finished the construction of the ceramic bobble heads in class and are now waiting for the pieces to air dry so we can fire them in the kiln. While we are waiting for the drying to take place, we began a landscape project. Each student choose a landscape image from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to work from. We talked about how we have this fantastic National Park in our back yard and we rarely go to explore this treasure. The students picked an image they admired and divided it into quarters. Each section of the landscape was transferred to a larger sheet of paper, completing a 22" x 42" piece. After sketching out the general details of each quarter, the artists will choose 4 different mediums to apply color to the landscape. Paint, oil pastel, colored pencil, collage, or chalk pastel are just a few of the choices. This is a new project to try and they are off to a strong start with the process.
