The Fall Theme Continues and Comics…

I hope everyone had a lovely Sukkot break: we are back at school and ready for the long haul.  This week has pretty much been a continuance of what we had began before we left for Sukkot break, which was a Fall Theme.  Kindergarten and 1st grade have transformed their painted fall color experiments into “Eric Carle” style trees.  They tore up their painted paper and construction paper, and glued the pieces into a circular shape to create a collaged tree.

Here are some of our results!

We are also beginning to work with clay.  The Art Class Forecast predicts clay projects in our future 😉

3rd-5th Grade have read the book Adventures in Cartooning (which they LOVED), and are now developing their own comics.

They are learning about character development, up-close shots, background, story-lines, and onomatopoeias.  They are still in the works, but check out a few examples of what’s been brewin’…

Tune in next week when I reveal what our upper grades are working on!
