Rotation 3


What are we learning and creating in the art class?

 

During our third art rotation, we are creating clay projects.  We are learning about the elements of line, shape, and texture as well as the principle of pattern.  We are also exploring the purposes of art.   Students are learning and practicing strategies for working with clay.  This is a popular art rotation!


Kindergarteners are creating clay owls.  First graders are creating gratitude pouches from clay.  Second graders are creating pinch pots.  Third graders are creating Native American storytellers.  Fourth graders are creating Native American spirit sticks or necklaces.  Fifth graders are creating dragons.   


Be sure to check out our hallway art displays next time you’re at Harmony.  We are so proud of our young artists!!!
