The month of October we celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month and explored Spanish and Mexican art making and traditions. We created this fun filled space to display our Hispanic artwork for the entire school to view! I'm very impressed with the amazing work 4th grade did on the fruit and crates! I can't wait for you all to see the final display!

I am so proud of my students and the hard work they put into our rainforest residency last year. Students collaboratively created a rainforest environment in our schools greenhouse out of paper mâché and recycled materials. Our program was recognized at the Pennsylvania State Excellence Fair in Hershey, PA two weeks ago. My students helped paint more flowers to decorate our booth! Thanks for all your hard work! I was honored to represent our arts program!!
Currently we are exploring art around the world this year. We are exploring artists and folk art from various cultures and countries! This was our last Hispanic Heritage Month lesson and we combined both Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo into one art project! We explored the style of each artist and used Picasso style portraits to make a portrait of Frida! These were done by my fabulous first graders!
Creative wishes art world! Enjoy!
