After reading the book "The Pigeon Wants a Puppy" by Mo Willems, the kindergarten students learned how to draw a series of shapes in order to draw their own pigeons. The students used their creativity to come up with something new for the pigeons to want.
After viewing the work of American artist, Georgia O'Keefe, the fourth grade students were inspired to create watercolor paintings of flowers. The students viewed photographs of flowers, and in order to capture the details of each flower, they painted a zoomed in version of the photo.
The 6th grade students learned how to create coil pots. First, I demonstrated the process of creating a coil pot; then the students planned their projects by sketching four different options for their final works. The next week, the sixth graders rolled slab bases, rolled coils, and attached the coils by using the technique of scoring and slipping.
