Crayon Etching

Each year my third grade students experiment with lines by making crayon etchings!  I finally got it right this year!  The trick is to cover BRIGHT crayon colors with thick black tempra paint instead of the crayons or oil pastels we tried in previous years.  We had some spectacular results!

School Spirit!

To support our girls volleyball team, the fifth graders chipped in to design posters for the gym!  They planned their poster in groups and created twelve wonderful posters.  GO YANKS!

Welcome Back Students!

As we get started back into a new set of projects, we have a new set of choices for students when they finish their artwork.These choices allow students to experience using a variety of media to create their own art and share their creations with other students!
