Important


The Important Thing
5th-graders considered "what is important about art" today in preparation for tomorrow's reflection and share day. Every two weeks we stop the making to consider both artwork and creative process. So today, to get ready for reflecting tomorrow, I asked "What is the important thing about art?" Can you read the responses above?
     IT'S CREATIVE
     IT CAN BE ANYTHING
     IT'S AN IDEA FROM YOUR HEAD
     IT'S BEAUTIFUL
     IT'S  INSPIRATIONAL
     IT'S EVERYTHING
     I'TS ODD
     IT'S YOU
     IT'S LIFE
     IT'S YOUR SPIRIT
     IT'S UNIQUE TO YOU
     THERE IS NO SINGLE PURPOSE
     IT'S YOUR THOUGHTS 
     YOU LOVE IT

I think this is the most unique list students have generated over the years that I have been asking this question. Are kids getting more creative?

6th Grade Animation Project

A team of 6th graders is working on the whiteboard to create stop-action animation. The whiteboard is a good solution for easily making changes in their progressive drawing. 

Today we had a world premier to share their work with the class. Enjoy.
