|Sam is building his letter "S" sculpture from recycled cereal boxes!|
"In art this week we did a lot of stuff. One thing we learned was how to function and how art class works. We are currently working on our 3D letter sculptures. Thanks for reading our weekly post and see ya next week."

|Our giant poster prints! These will be painted soon.|
"This week was our first week in art. Everyday we do the drawing challenge of the day. My favorite challenge was day five which was a superhero. We also took a selfie to start our big project that we will be doing. It is really fun!"

8th Grade Art:
|Kyle's awesome face mug has been fired, and is awaiting glaze soon!|
"This week, in Art class, from Monday to Wednesday we worked on our ceramics projects. We had the choice of making a monster pot, a mug, a box with words on it, or a human sculpture. Once we were finished we got to make a project of our choice. On Thursday and Friday we started learning about our pixel portrait project, in which we draw our face on a piece of graph paper coloring each square one color. So far we have printed our face from Photoshop with a grid on top of it. We'll use the picture to decide which color to color each square."
