El Alebrije...A study of Mexican Folk Art

Working with all of Ms. Memoe's Spanish students, we combined our talents to make a unit on Mexican Folk Art.  Ms. Memoe provided the background on these unique sculptures while Ms. Baker and Ms. Miller taught the unit on creating a clay sculpture that was inspired by these Oaxacan animal sculptures.  Each student created a unique piece of art inspired by this style and then used the art to inspire a writing piece in Spanish.  It was a huge success with a each class creating a movie.  These sculptures are currently on display in the WCS Library and will also be showcased at the Dorothy Alling Library (in the Youth Display Case) through the month of January.

"Stained Glass Me"

A unit that celebrates art, science,and friendship?  Our third and fourth graders just completed a project that celebrates all three! 

Voyager Global Art Exhibit

 A night of art, reflection, and sharing. On Thursday, November 19th from 6:30-8:00 pm the Voyager hallway will be transformed for one night only to showcase a beautiful, powerful, and globally connected art installation. Students have been working on large pieces of art to match a piece of poetry since September, and we are now ready to invite the greater community in for the opening of this “exhibit”. Every member of our 7/8 community will have a personal piece on display for you to look at and read as you walk down our hallway enjoying the additional lights, pictures, and sounds produced and displayed for this event. Upon entering Voyager House there will also be a slideshow of photographs, audio recordings, and work from our first trimester on display in the Kiva, Quatt Core, and Wesnak Core.

Harbor Students Plan a Trip

Harbor 7th and 8th graders studied World Geography and to engage them on the topic, we had the students plan a mock trip anywhere in the world.  This project tied humanities, art, and math together into one awesome project.  The evening celebration showcased their hard work throughout the trimester.  Below are a sampling of the "souvenirs" that they created in the art room.
