Teach peace

We've been working hard on our pinwheels for peace project. I've used this unit to teach about the international day of peace and what peace truly means to us in our everyday lives. It's  sad that some understand what war means more than the meaning of peace. Students looked at symbols from around the world that meant peace and we created artwork with peace doves and artwork based on Picassos petite fleurs.

Arts in the school night 2nd grade

Second graders also studied Native American art and geometric quilt designs. We also created some Native American drums. This was a challenging but fun project! 

Arts in the school night 1st grade

Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd grade all did early Americas for our art night theme. So in art we focused on Native American art and colonial quilt making. We also looked at important American monuments like the Statue of Liberty. 
Here are some of first grades art night images.
