STILL IN EDIT
Below is a collection of 6th, 7th and 8th grade paper mache. I have not edited the photos completely and still need to add some more text. But some students wanted to see the pictures, so here they are:
Great job on the Suessical imagery!
Good shot of 5 completed paper mache masks. A high degree of finish at this table.
Here’s an intelligent, motivated student He wanted to make a bank instead of a mask. I try to stay out of the way when a student comes up with their own idea.
This mask has to win the award for creepiest! I told him to put it on his bedroom door at home, if he does not want anyone to come in! The green yarn hair really makes it better.
Almost a see no evil, hear no evil set of monkeys!
Always the thoughtful one, here the Chandler contemplates how many ways he hates his art teacher.
I cannot remember why Ms. Pike felt the need to strike a pose here, I’m sure she has her reasons.
Mr. Christian eventually turned this into Squidward, a Spongebob character
Drawing zentangles can be fun, enjoyable, or boring. It really depends upon the student. Most like it and it gives us a loose format and form to create with. I also get to rehash and introduce all kinds of design terms that I’d like them to remember.
I’m very fortunate to work with so many nice students. As the rest of the class today was working on Easter cards, Noah and Matt bought out some work they were doing on their own.
