Fourth and Fifth Graders created colorful wire self-portraits inspired by their study of artist Alexander Calder. Their work was on display for Open House which also happened to be Big Art Day.
The First, Second, and Third Grade students brainstormed various dreams they have for the future as we learned about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. They then drew a self-portrait with a thought bubble to illustrate their dream.

For the first week of school, each grade was assigned a specific color. Each student drew a self-portrait using that specific colored marker on an index card. They then water colored over the self-portrait in the same color. The cards were then glued onto bulletin board paper and laminated together as a mural. The colors are in order from Kinder through Fifth Grade so it was interesting to see the progression of drawing skills from one grade to the next. The lesson also served as an intro into the color wheel and color order.
