3rd and 4th Grade Art

While waiting for the ceramic work to fire in the kiln, we did a fast printmaking project. The students looked at the work of Georgia O'Keeffe and we talked about the impact of her work on the mainly male driven art world. We discussed how her environment directed her work and paid close attention to her flower series. Each student created a flower image on their printing plates and we will begin printing soon. One class last week was a combined Science and Art class focusing on the equinox and the Mayan culture. The class created sun masks and then we went outside to have the masks absorb the energy from the sun. They ended the class by creating a human snake dance to lead the class back inside. It is always a fun class to combine Science and Art and we had an enjoyable learning experience.
