Fifth grade always ends with a rock painting lesson. Each student leaves Westside by painting a rock and leaving it in the courtyard as a gift and a reminder of their experience as a wildcat. I tell them they can come back is thirty years and look for it......after they stop in the art room and say hi to the 70 year old Mr. Cleveland:)

Kindergarten learned about color and how to mix colors by the layering technique. They also proved to me that they do in fact know their alphabet. Our goal was to create 26 different colors on our paper. This was a fun experiment. Some students even started to name the new colors they created.

First grade did a cut and paste project based on the book by Bernard Most "If the Dinosaurs Came Back". Contrast, overlapping to create depth, using a straight edge, and drawing from observation were all applied during this project.
