5th and 6th Grade Art

We have begun the rhombicosidodecahedron project! Thank you to the families that have brought in the cereal and light cardboard packaging for the construction of this project. We began the project talking about the different geometric solids and the identification of faces, edges and vertices found in a solid. We then talked about the importance of careful craftsmanship to create a successful piece. Each stage of the project requires a strong focus, whether it is tracing the shape, cutting, folding or gluing the faces together. This is an intense project, but one of our favorites.
I hope you will all find time to come visit the gallery and view the amazing shaded form drawings the students completed. They are dramatic and interesting to see the different techniques each student explored.
