Here is Syrah pointing out her leaf water color on display. The board in her hand was a scaventure hunt the kids could participate in if they would like. The questions on the scaventure hunt were geared towards having the kids really look for things within all the art (find an painting that uses waves, find a sculpture that has circles in it, find something that makes you smile, find a piece of art that makes you feel calm, etc).
These are the fifth grade dogs - I had to take a picture of both sides of the tables. They created these out of clay and because they have a kiln in the middle school they are able to do these type of projects. They painted and glazed them, drew a picture of their dog and named it!
Each dog had variations on their tails, heads, eyes, shapes, etc... it was very fun to see each child's creation.
They had a parent who works with pottery wheels doing demonstrations... there was always a crowd around her and the kids loved asking questions about the process. I watched and it brought back memories of the strength it takes in your arms and hands. It sure appears more "simple" than it is!
