Wacky Wednesday Specials!

Posted by on in Southwest Elementary News

For the last several weeks the specials team has joined together on Wednesdays to team teach.  We were first able to help Mrs. Billingsly get extra music practice in before the Spring Concert.  Then, we started our two week adventure in camping!  The first week was spent learning how to build tents and then coloring a picture of tents in the style of Andy Warhol.  This past Wednesday we gathered around our "campfire" for games, camp songs, and campfire stories.  It's been a lot of fun for students AND the specials teachers!

Paper Mache in the Art Room!

Posted by on in Southwest Elementary News
5th grade is in the middle of their last project for the school year: Paper Mache Greek Vases!  This has been an intense project because it first began with research!  Students spent two art classes sketching ideas from their research on not only the shapes of ancient Greek vases, but the array of designs as well.  Now, students are in the thick of using the paper mache process to make their vases to then be painted.  It's an exciting project and I cannot wait to post the final results!
