This morning students in 5A experimented some more with chromatography. Inks and markers are often combinations of several colored dyes. The dyes can be separated through a process called chromatography and the end result is amazing art.
These two artworks were created by Stephen. Check out my photo album to see more of the students' results.
I've posted several pictures of our students and their artwork in my photo albums. Please check them out and have a wonderful Christmas!

Sixth grade students are making scratch boards using oil pastels and India ink. After their new drawing surfaces are dry, students will fill their designs with ancient motifs and Christian symbols.
Each eighth grade student chose one of Chris Van Allsburg's illustrations from his book, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. The students are using Van Allsburg's detailed, sometimes surrealistic drawings as inspiration for their own illustrations and stories. Portions of several students' drawings may be viewed in my photo album.
Second grade students are designing vases. By using slightly curved lines, their vases look rounded. They gained plenty of ideas from Cincinnati artists Maria Longworth Nichols Storer and Mary Louise McLaughlin. They also looked at photos taken inside the present day Rookwood Pottery Studios.
