Yes the last two weeks have been jam packed with fun in the FBCS Art room. We celebrated book character day with Mrs. Orman, Mrs. Trense, and the 2nd grade. Children shared their costumes, ate popcorn and goldfish, and made beautiful bookmarks.
Second through fifth grade studied weaving. We learned about Kente cloth weaving and talked about the weavings made for the tabernacle in the book of Exodus. The students were excited to hear that the Israelites wove real gold through their cloth. I had to break the news that we didn't have real gold, only yarn. With hard work and persistence they completed their projects and wrote why their weaving would look beautiful in the tabernacle. If you come through the middle school building you may see you child's art hanging in the art room or in the halls.
Kindergarten students used oil pastels to complete their Rainbow Fish. They are now learning about movement and Edgar Degas. Little thumbprint people are dancing, running, swimming, and skateboarding around their papers.
