The Grinch

The grade 3 classes did a great job drawing and painting their Grinch pictures! I love how all of the smiles are different. Before getting to work, we watched a quick video of the grinch having his “horrible, awful idea”. Here are a few samples of their work. Enjoy!

The grade four classes made very interesting kaleidoscope patterns out of their names! All of the art projects are unique – just like our students and their personalities.

Can you find “Cooper”, “Taylor”, “Zach”, “Seth”, “Makayla”, “Emmalee”, “Lili”, “Avery” and “Nevaeh”?

Enjoy!

Watercolour Turtles

The best part of this watercolour project was teaching the kids about complementary colours on the colour wheel. They used only two complementary colours on the shell. Some of the markings on the turtle were made with pastels. Here are some pictures of the teaching steps as well as samples of the grade 4’s amazing turtles! Enjoy!

Birds and Birch Trees

The Grade 4 classes finished their Birds and Birch Trees art projects last week. In this activity, they used credit cards to create the black markings on the birch trees and they used toothbrushes to spatter white paint onto the birds to make it look like there was snow on them. Here are a few samples. Enjoy!

Shadow Sculptures

The Grade Four classes did an art project which combined our learning in Science (Light and Shadows). The students first watched a YouTube video on how to make sculptures out of aluminum foil. All of the sculptures below were formed with one whole piece of foil. After they had their sculptures glued onto paper, they used their flashlights to create a shadow. A friend held the flashlight as they traced the shadow. Finally, they coloured the shadow jet black with a Sharpie marker. Enjoy!
