Check out this collection of Upper Elementary's mystery creatures!
 
Ms. Emily’s Art Castle is once again filled with the sounds of happy, creative, and very busy students. You may recall, we couldn’t use the art studio last year due to precautionary pandemic restrictions. This school year, however, brought back many school traditions including the return of the art studio, where all kinds of art mediums and visual art processes are at work. For instance, our Upper Elementary students enjoyed getting their hands messied and muddled with shredded paper soaked in organic, naturally made dyes. Students learned how to make their own distinctive paper tableaux in which to display mystery creatures. Each mystery creature was created by students to be unique in design and function. And, the Upper El artists will be constructing personal journals from the paper they made to host student biographies written in Ms. Leanne’s and Ms. Abby’s Language Arts class. By the way, the Upper Elementary art installation of these projects can be found on the third floor hallway display board. Next up in Art Class? A whole unit based on the work of Native American artist John Neito. Stay tuned.
