September Art Project For Grades 4 - 6

All students in grades four through six have completed art projects that will be on display at the African American Multicultural Museum, which is located at 617 N. Scottsdale Rd.  The exhibit will run mid-October through November 12th.  The artworks depict a portrait of one person with many skin tones collaged onto the face.  The hair is painted with red, white and blue paint, to symbolize that many different individuals live within the United States of America.

Students wrote a short essay to accompany their artwork, explaining why it is important for people to get along with one another.  Why do you think friendship and getting along with others is an important part of life?


September Art Project For K - 3

We have been working on the art standard of creating meaning behind our artworks.  Kindergarten through third grade students listened to the read aloud Our Class is Going Green, which was written and illustrated by kindergarten students at Oak Park Elementary School in Bartlesville, OK.  Afterwards, our students created collages about ways to help the earth, such as recycling and turning off the water when we are finished using it.  

What are some ways that you can help the earth?
