So it has been a busy spring so far and students at FMS are still working hard on one last project (in each grade) before the school year finishes up. I have finally caught up on photographing and posting all the latest work since Motley was taking most of my attention up to now. So here is a project from each grade level to enjoy as summer fast approaches.
Grade 5: Ceramic coil pottery. This ancient method has been used by people around the globe to create beautiful pottery.
Grade 6: Book illustrations. Students used a range of values and multiple drawing techniques to illustrate scenes from books they have read.
Grade 7. Adaptive creatures. Students had to consider all the environmental factors that lead evolution down its weird and winding path as they created their own unique animals.
Grade 8. We’re all mad here! Enjoy these funky teapots created by 8th graders.
