Many Irons in the Fire

These last few classes before winter break have been a mix of starting new projects while finishing old ones. Most of the students have completed their final print making/mixed media project, where they combined printmaking, drawing and collage.

The first - second grade class made some mixed media "What did you find in the snow?" paintings. First they made oil pastel drawings:

Then they added the snow with paint and Q-tips:

 Today all of the classes began the first phase of some holiday clay work:

And also began work on some collaborative art projects:

Next week is our final class before break. The students will be bringing some art pieces from this semester home on Thursday, although some might be labeled "Do not open until Christmas!"
