Second grade students compared Maria Longworth Nichols Storer's Aladdin vase to Mary Louise Mclaughin's Ali Baba vase. They also looked at a variety of Rookwood pottery in the Cincinnati Art Museum's collection via the Google art project and museum view. As students began designing their own vases, they decided to share their ideas on the chalkboard. 
Fourth grade students are practicing their observation skills as they draw flowers during art class. They are dissecting and and identifying the same type of flowers during science class.
First grade students illustrated In A Dark, Dark Wood. Open the doors to their haunted houses if you dare. You may even find some secret rooms.
This week the kindergarten students created symmetrical robot collages. Look in my photo album for more pictures.
The fifth grade students visited the Cincinnati Art Museum this past Friday. They explored the museum for about two hours and saw only a small portion of the 10,000 objects in the museum's permanent collection. Their visit coincided with a novel that the students read earlier this fall. 

Favorite Moments

I just thought I'd take a moment to share the following: 

Monday I introduced students in 4A and 5A to the Visionaries and Voices program. This program gives artists with disabilities the materials, space and opportunities to sell their work. After watching two short videos about the artists and looking at their art, I asked the students to make cards for the V&V artists. Students were asked to offer words of encouragement or to share their own art-making experiences. Some of the students made connections between their interests, knowledge and art styles to those of the V&V artists.  

This morning a student gave me a fantastic drawing that he had done at home. As much as I wanted to keep and display this work of art, it was not for me.On his own, he'd taken the initiative to illustrate and fully color a work of art that a specific V&V artist will appreciate. Two artists who have never met will make a connection, feel inspired and understood through art. Additionally, a thoughtful student gave his time and talent to create something wonderful for someone else.
