Week of October 16th

Kindergarten and Mrs. Gersten’s class:

This week we read the story The Little White Owl by Tracey Corderoy and Jane Chapman.  The students used Model Magic Clay to sculpt their own little owl. The kinders explored various sculpting tools to design their owl.  Next week they will add colors inspired by the owls from the story.  We will also make a tree out of paper bags.

Third Grade:

The students were introduced to the process of print making.  We looked at patterns found in art pieces and discussed what shapes and colors repeated.  We talked about the difference between patterns that have a motif and patterns that are random.  Then using 2 plastic bags, the students used Mr. Sketch markers to draw out a background design and symbol. Then they pressed the plastic bag onto their paper to create the print.  It was a great art experience!

Fourth Grade and Mrs. Simmons’ class:

Weaving time!  Today was session 1 of our weaving project.  We talked about the different ways baskets contributed to the everyday lives of the early California Indians.  We also looked at the basket weaving art of local San Diego artist Eva Salazar.
