This school year I was moved into a new classroom. When I entered the room during the summer, I was overwhelmed with how empty and bare everything was. I knew I immediately needed to add some color and thought having my students make some permanent artwork would be the perfect opportunity.
These were paintings done by my 5th grade class. The students were broken up into groups of 7 or 8 and recreated a famous work using a grid method. We practiced the whole grid technique prior to their final painting. Check out the results which now hang in my room!
And just one more random photo: A student of mine made this out of a toothpick... I just thought it was kind of humorous :-).
