Art started on a rock, in a cave.

I took every student at Westside back in time to the beginning of Art.  Art was originally created as a way of communication and story telling.  Since there was not any language back then the artists (caveman) drew pictures on rock.  Their hand prints were their identity.

Assessment time.

Here is a little reminder to the students of how I assess their Art.  This was as simple and less wordy as I could think of.  I often times have students tell me which number they think they earned.  This is posted where all can see.

Fifth graders have been working on Tessellations for a while, this took way longer than I thought it would.  We studied M.C. Escher.  With a few cuts you can turn a square into a more interesting shape.  Good stuff Wildcats!

Some of our students designed Zentangled placemats for the Fifth anniversary of the Sunshine Supper.  Nothing like being involved in your own community.
