CVESD Holiday Greeting Card Contest!

Congratulations to Hatsumi in 5th grade for winning the Holiday Greeting Card Contest at Wolf Canyon!

Supplies needed…

We have completed so many wonderful and MESSY projects this 1st half of the year.  And we have extinguished our baby wipe and Magic Eraser supply.  We could sure use more!  Donations can be dropped off at room 706. Thank you!

What’s going on in the Art Room…

Kindergarten and Mrs. Gersten’s class:  The kinder students are learning about implied texture and actual texture.  Using texture plates, students created crayon rubbings on a grid.  These grids will be painted with Water color paint.  Students will then write out the letters of their name on the grid.

First Grade:  The students just finished their Painted Paper Patterned Tea cups.  They are beautiful.  We learned about how artists use line to achieve patterns.  Using oil pastels, students created  several patterns on their tea cup, handle, and saucer. Then they painted a background using a sponge and green tempera paint. They added white smoke using Color Sticks.

Second grade:  The students learned about the Japanese Cherry Blossom.  We learned about the Science behind the timing of the blossoms in a National Georgraphic Video.  Student created their own cherry blossoms by coloring in a chalk pastel background and blowing black paint with a straw to create the branches.  Afterwards, students used q-tips to paint the cherry blossoms.

3rd grade:  The 3rd grade students are making warm and cool city scapes using the printmaking art process.  Using “scratchboard”, students engraved a drawing of a city using a dull pencil.  They painted a warm and cool background representing sky and  water.


4th grade:  Check out the completed project sin the school auditorium.  Using burlap and yarn, students designed a tapestry piece.

5th grade and Mrs. Simmon’s class:  The students were taught one-point perspective drawing skills.  Using a vanishing point, converging lines, and a horizon line, students drew a winter picture through a “Worm’s eye view”.

6th grade:  The 6th graders just finished their Egyptian profiles.  We are starting a new project involving Origami and Radial symmetry.
