NJAHS members Delaney, Haleigh, & Vivian spearheaded the Helping Haiti Collection Drive. From mid October through November, they had FBCS and Apple Tree Academy students bring in supplies. This week the supplies will be delivered to Missionary Flights International in Fort Pierce where they will be loaded on planes headed for Haiti. I am proud of these girls and blessed to know them. Way to make a difference for Christ! Also a big thank you goes to Mrs. Edwards for her help with collecting supplies from Apple Tree Academy.
Third, fourth, & fifth grade artists spent their time in the studio today learning how to finger knit. Finger knitting is a type of weaving that uses yarn, fingers, & a pair of scissors. Our star finger knitters were Tanner, Rebecca, & Francesca. Here is the video we used to learn how to do it.
FBCS 5th & 6th grade Art Club created the owls for our thanksgiving bulletin boards. Students then added post-it notes of who they were thankful for. Great job art club artists!
Kindergarten & 2nd grade artists painted their clay roosters and fish with tempera paint this morning. After art, Kindergarten students joined 1st graders in an action packed Thanksgiving Feast. There were all kinds of activities and the students enjoyed them all. Thank you Mrs. Mejia and all the parent volunteers.
Clay day with 1st and 2nd grade was a great success. Thank you Warrior Workshop mom, Mrs. Marshall for all your help. Our artists worked hard and their owls and fish look fabulous. Kindergarten will be making roosters this week. We will be adding color, legs, and hangers to our creations. To find out more about this lesson, click here.
And the winner is Team 7: Maddie P., Maddie K., Rachel, Allison, & Seth
Middle School artists are learning about the elements and principles of art. For this assignment they worked in groups to compose a simple song on the elements of art. Every group did a great job and I am sure they all can tell you (or I should say they can sing) the elements of art. Great job middle school artists! For more information on this lesson click here.
I recently finished a course through Adobe Education Exchange. It was called eLearning and the Creative Classroom: Creating Digital Content. The top take away for me was learning about Adobe Spark, a free program that offers a platform for creating graphics, digital stories, and videos. I found it provides an easy way to present lessons to my students. I can include instructions, how to videos, photos, links, etc. Here is an example of a lesson I put together on Adobe Spark.
These FBCS 5th & 6th grade artists are amazing. I enjoyed every Wednesday afternoon art club meeting with them. They created beautiful art displays for the whole school to enjoy. Thank you for your hard work, enthusiasm, and love for art!
