Kinder trains

Kindergarten painted some trains.  In one class period they used sharpies to draw the basic shapes to their train car and then painted them.  They all turned out so different and quite lovely.  I love the loose lines in this one.

March was music in our schools month

1st grade students made African drums and 3rd grade students made acoustic guitars. This picture shows the guitars that are not quite finished.

March out like a lamb

The kindergarten class that I saw before Easter is ahead of the other kindergarten classes. We needed a quick project and in 25 minutes they created these cute little lambs. March comes in like a Lion and out like a Lamb... I think it has mostly shown lion behavior. Hopefully April will bring us some lovely spring weather.

An animation before thanksgiving break

We had a great visit from Pittsburghs Channel 4 news.  The kids created an animation to welcome the meteorologist.  I will post it as soon as i can get the computer that we created it on connected to the internet.

Saturday Animation

Saturday Art Classes were really great!  Since there are so many great things that we often do not have time to cover in a school day, I had the pleasure of teaching a few students on Saturdays.  We had three sessions and they all went really well.  Here is an example of what the two students in the Dinosaur animation class created.  They made this short movie in only two one hour sessions.  Thank you to all of the students who participated, we had a great time!

Integrating Academics with Installation Art

A third grade teacher and myself are involved in a project through the Intermediate Unit 1 and The Mattress Factory Art Museum. The regular education teacher and myself are to determine weaknesses in test scores and then create a lesson which integrates art with our weakness. We are looking at the life cycle of a sunflower. We will be combining science, art and math as we will be measuring growth. We are looking at the life cycle of a sunflower.

In art class we looked at Sunflowers in art.  The students also worked together to create this awesome animation.

This week we are working on "The Space I'm In". An installation space is going to be created. Our third grade students will be working with the sunflowers. I'm not 100% what I am going to do with the other students yet. We will see!
