Screenprinting with the fourth grade

The fourth grade artists started silkscreen printing. For the introduction they were to print simple abstract forms. To aid in clean-up we used Prange fingerpaints. The artists loved printing and making multiple copies. Pulling a print.

A cool prints.


More prints.

The Lincoln Gallery

Lincoln at other schools

I went to visit another Abe Lincoln exhibit at Sidener Academy in IPS. Here are some of the great works. Some of the pieces of work were multi-media such as recordings, interviews and original songs. It was all very cool and informative.

Valentine's Day with Jim Dine

For a mini-lesson the second grade learned about the Pop artist from Ohio, Jim Dine. Then they created these heartworks from stencils they made and pastels.

More Chinese New Year fun

We had a lot of fun testing out our chop sticks. I am afraid that if we only had chop sticks in the cafe than we would have some very hungry students.
