Mask Parade 2020

 Our UCS Mask Parade 2020 was a little wet, but spirits were high and children were excited to see one and other from a distance. 


BIG thanks to the UCS PTO--each child was able to decorate a white cloth face mask.



Students created a design, and we used fabric crayons to transfer their ideas to a white cloth mask.






Googly Eye Bombing



At home this week, students were challenged to view their world in a new way--what would it look like with googly eyes!? These creative students shared their work with me. 



Eye bombing is the art of placing eyes on an object to give it the appearance of being alive. It is meant to be fun and help you see the world around you differently. 



Who knew a faucet had such personality!!

Famous Laundry Art

 For some additional art enrichment at home, students were challenged to recreate a famous piece of artwork out of LAUNDRY. The results are awesome!

Food Portraits Inspired by Arcimboldo



 Students learned a bit about Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo who is well known for using foods as features in his portraits. As you can see, our students had fun with this idea!

More Amazing Student Artists

This week, students were asked to go outside and use their artist's eyes to observe something natural growing in springtime (a leaf emerging, a flower blooming, a nest being built) then draw it.
