SPARK Studio Art - Rotation 1

I am constantly getting asked, "WHAT DO YOU DO IN SPARK?".  Here is a 3.5 minute video that gives you an idea of what we did in Studio Art.  Each Studio Art is different because the students get a say in the direction of the class.  Enjoy a sneak peek at 5 weeks of after school fun.

Recycled Books become hedge hogs

What can you do with a book that is about to be recycled?  Well... third and fourth graders are making hedge hogs by folding these discarded treasures.  It is so much fun that we are thinking of trying turkeys next.  Stay tuned to see what we can create!

Monet monoprints

Claude Monet was the artist that inspired us.  We read a story and learned many facts.  In the Impressionistic style, we created our own water lily monoprints.  Enjoy the video to see our process and come and check out our arrays (nice math tie in!) in the corridors.
