A dot…a line…is just the beginning… CREATE your own endings!

That is exactly what the Art Department is trying to accomplish with each lesson that is being taught to the students.  Students start out with a line and create their own projects from that line.  All high school students are given a project and they are to pick the subject matter.  Art teacher, Adrienne Johnson, stated ”We have some very creative artists in the Senior High school so stop in and see some of their works in progress.” Junior High finished their silkscreen t-shirts which will be on display next week.  They also worked on three dimensional boxes using abstract art.  You may view them hanging from the art room ceiling.

 The second and third graders are going to study a unit on weaving.  Their projects will incorporate the weavings of the Navajo Indians of the Southwest.  Mrs. Johnson made a template for them (the math would be two difficult for them) to trace on their paper plate.  They then drew a line from the apex to each notch that is on their loom (paper plate). Students will discuss warm, cool, analogous, and complimentary colors.  They will pick one color combination and create and color that combination on their looms.  Mrs. Johnson then demonstrates to students how to put the warp on looms and begin weaving the weft to make their projects.  The photo below is an example of the weaving projects.   

The students should be done in a few weeks. According to Mrs. Johnson “After the students finish their weaving they will write a short paper about their weavings. Drop by and see our progress or the finished project!”

In addition, the 4th and 5th graders finished their self-portraits adorned with sign language names (see photos below), and they are displayed on the board outside the Art Room.  They are also working on a print. They drew an animal and glued string on the outline of the animal.  They proceeded to print when done with gluing. Most of the other elementary classes are working in clay and painting.
