Mural Brainstorming

Another mural is underway. Students have been working so hard on their mural ideas that I cannot wait to see the final results. The theme this year is the Special Area classes: Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer, Guidance, Health & Library. We are inspired by so many of these classes that a wall should be dedicated to them. Students are working individually and in pairs.

Students also create portfolios with graffiti style letters representing their initials. They then spray painted them n the sink using the primary colors to make the secondary colors. Check out a video of Mackenzie's new inventive way to create.

Keep following us!

Please Donate

Art Club
Donations Needed
Every year Art Club gives back in a “crafty way.”
This year we will be making craft kits for Caitlin Smiles.

Taken from the website: “Caitlin’s Smiles provides children in hospitals with arts and crafts activities in the forms of “Bags of Smiles”, individual arts and crafts kits, homemade cards and treasure and treat kits. These kits help us put smiles on the faces of children facing chronic or life-threatening illnesses by encouraging them to focus upon creative arts activities to boost their self-confidence and self-worth”

We will be making craft kits and decorating bags during our Art Club meetings in December. I am asking for material donations to help make the craft kits.

Items Needed:
  1. Pony Beads (colors: red, black, yellow, orange, blue and white)
  2. Elastic cord for bracelet making (any color, but stretchy please)
  3. Ziploc sandwich baggies
  4. Paper bags: 8 x 10 x 4 (with a handle), it doesn't matter what the color is.

Please give all donations to Mrs. Jarrett in the Art Room by: Monday, December 5th

Thank you in advance for helping us give back in a “crafty way!”
