What's Next - Clay (1st-5th grade)
1st-3rd grade students created these amazing spinning tops out of recycled materials! We used cds, marker caps, marbles, paper, glue sticks, and markers to create our tops. Mrs. George used a hot glue gun to attach the marker cap and the marble. Students also learned about radial symmetry and created a design for their spinning top using radial symmetry. They all loved watching their tops spin on the floor when they finished their work! (Dec 2017)
Students have been very busy creating with clay in November and December! Here are some of the creations classes made- 1st grade- Owls, 2nd grade- Snowmen, 3rd grade- Pinch Pot Animals, 4th grade- Coil Pots, 5th grade- Leaf Bowls
For this project 3rd graders used real leaves to trace then look at veins and draw them. Afterwards they used glue to trace over their pencil lines. The next week they used colored sharpies to color over the dried glue. This week they are adding mostly warm colors inside the leaves, then mostly cool colors around the leaves.
This year Eberwhite artists will participate in a fundraiser to benefit the PTO and Artroom! Students created drawings and painting of their choice and had to plan out their idea. When creating most students chose a theme of nature, family, abstract design, or something related to a sport. We thought our fundraiser was fun and successful! We hope to do it again in the future :)
A brand new center has arrived in the Artroom! It's called the Architecture Center! Students in all grades love our new center! Currently we have T.S. Shure ArchiQuest Modern & Post-Modern Architecture Wooden Building Blocks as well as Cool Colored CitiBlocs. Students can use a guide to help them build, use their imagination, create blue prints before building, and draw their finished design.
Kindergarteners have been studying what Artists do in the studio. For this lesson students choose from a variety of toys and used their scientific observational skills to draw what they see, paying special attention to shapes and colors. They did an awesome job and were happy with their results!
2nd and 3rd graders created some fabulous Artist Trading Cards in art this week. Artist Trading Cards or ATCs are 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches in size, the same format as modern trading cards such as hockey, baseball, Pokemon, etc. They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist, and can be exchanged and collected by other students or given to family members. It is a fun way to make a small series of similarly themed works!
There’s still time to go see the many works of our talented AAPS artists displayed at the library downtown! Our Annual Ann Arbor Public Schools Student Art Exhibit is located at the Ann Arbor District Library at 343 S. Fifth Ave. The artwork will be displayed on the lower level, in the Youth Department, and on the third floor. The art will be displayed at the Library through May 29 and can be seen during normal library hours.
It's Youth Art Month! Student art work from Ann Arbor Public Schools has turned Downtown Ann Arbor into a walking gallery. Eberwhite Artwork can be found at the Carol Roeda Studio- they do such a lovely job displaying our artwork each year! If you did not get a chance to see our art during YAM look in the slideshow below :)
