Seventh and fifth grade students have finished up some lengthy projects and the results of the students dedication and creativity are gorgeous.
5th grade studied insects and all their segmented parts using colored pencils for the initial drawings, then we created collages using mixed materials. Ink was rolled over the collage and then run through the printing press. All the textures and materials rose to the surface when the print was revealed.
Meanwhile, 7th graders looked at the motifs of the tribes of the Pacific Northwest and then created 3D ceramic masks of a stylized animal. Bears, alligators, deer and rabbits now populate the display cases outside the library.
