Each student in Mr. Hellberg's class created their own SQUARE with CONCENTRIC circles and they were displayed together as one collaborative piece! Students used kwik stix and neon oil pastels to complete this project. Enjoy!
Both 4th Grade classes created unique Nutcracker designs to be displayed at Integra First Credit Union in Powers! Click on the images below to see them hard at work.

Artwork was displayed by the high
school Visual Arts class (shown above).
Today was my last meeting with Mrs. Martin's 4th grade class. Students were able to take home their Elements of Art project below, inspired by the element VALUE. This could be completed later at home with simple crayon as an art medium. Click on the images to enlarge.
In addition to the shading project, students also took home sketchbooks and their self-portrait! To finish off the day, students were able to relax and create a zentangle project. Click on the images below to see some photos from their work time today.
4th Grade students created these one-of-a-kind nutcracker illustrations right before our winter break. We practiced drawing two different nutcrackers - one was fairly basic, and the other more advanced. After some guided drawing instruction, students were able to draw their own design, either like the simpler concept, or the more detailed... or maybe their own combination!
Nutcrackers were finalized with black sharpie, and filled in with either colored pencil or color sticks. Next, the top portion of the background space needed some pizzazz. Students used oil pastels to create a pattern of their choice. The last step was to watercolor paint the remainder of the background - over the oil pastel, and one other separate, contrasting color for the bottom section.
Overall, I always love seeing the creativity of students through this project, and I hope everyone else enjoys viewing them as well. Click on the images below to enlarge. Merry Christmas!!
