    8th Graders

    Happy Thanksgiving!  I cannot believe that my time with 8th graders is almost at an end.  We will have a few short weeks together after Thanksgiving, and then I say goodbye!  I am looking forward to finishing our abstract human form sculpture projects this week.  Students have created some marble effect paper and will cut out figures this week and then pose them together in their choice of activity or scene to create their finished pieces.  We will add in a few props, such as grass, books, steps, etc. to fill out the scene.  We also have a message from our PTO regarding our Original Works fundraiser.  Ours students complete some lovely Abstract Expressionist style paintings earlier this year and they can now be purchased on products:

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  Our 7th graders head into our break having completed some lovely colored pencil memory projects as well as their Sculpey Bunnies!  This week we will wrap up any remaining colored pencil projects, see a demonstration on Sculpey and students will create and personify a miniature bunny.  They will choose poses and accessories to create the personality for this little gem.  I love seeing what they do with these each year.  We also have a message from our PTO about our Original Works fundraiser.  Our 7th graders completed acrylic paintings of animals earlier this year and those are now available to purchase on products:
