4th grade

4th Graders are in the middle of a mixed media project focusing on the concept of deconstruction. On the first day we looked at the 3 examples at the top to form a student driven definition of deconstruction.  Then students all did some practice work in their sketchbooks. Everyone used Mickey Mouse as their character to deconstruct. Aren’t they amazingly bizarre? Students are working on a character of their choice right now. More on that soon. 

At the beginning of every year students create self portraits in the art studio.  This year they created collage self portraits.  Younger grades were given oil pastels to add facial features.  Older grades were encouraged to add 3 dimensional elements.  They did an amazing job.  These are all on display the whole year above their classroom door.
