1st graders are using Model Magic to create a one-of-a-kind form. Model Magic air dries, bounces, and mixes. Students practiced mixing combinations of the primary colors (red, yellow, blue) to make the secondary colors of orange, green, and violet.

Pop Art Sculptures!
These photos show 4th graders proudly displaying their sculptures from 3rd grade. This years 3rd grade project will start late November or early December. Last year I opened the art room up for parent volunteers to assist students with their ambitious projects. The experiment was a HUGE success. Volunteers are needed again this year. I'll send a message out to parents via email or a letter home providing detailed information about the project later on this month.

|I was informed that this is a baby robot.|
|This model has all the bells and whistles: movable eyes, twistable neck, and a claw-grip hand.|

Here is a picture of a Kindergartener working on a digital work of art during art class. Students are encouraged to take turns working collaboratively on Tux Painting after the completion of their regular art projects. Tux Paint is free and the kids enjoy using it! You can down load it here at http://www.tuxpaint.org/
Several students in Mrs. Wilson's Kindergarten class worked on this picture. The title was given by the students.
A pet turtle is a new addition to the art room this year. A “naming contest” was initiated at the start of the school year. A few hundred name suggestions where crammed into a box by K-4th grade students. Their where many creative names that where given to the turtle. Some of the more creative names include: Art Man, Shelldon, Swimmerson, and Mr. Proctor Jr. From all the names given I chose Emma Dykrop’s suggestion of Mr. Puddles. Here is Emma Dyrkop from Mrs. Tibben’s 4th grade classroom receiving her certificate of naming. Mr. Puddles is a 2-year old male red-eared slider that enjoys taking long swims by the beach and eating an occasional rock or two.

Looks like 4th grade will be wrapping up their Victorian Houses in the next two weeks. Students used pencil, ruler, worksheets, google images, templates, photo references, bleach (yes bleach), q-tips, and oil pastels to design their one-of-a-kind Victorian House.
Looks like someone mowed the grass.
Check out the staircase!
That tall grass is eagerly awaiting for the sun to shine.
