With the auction a success I now have some time to share some more shots of what the kids at North Beach Elementary did this year!
A collage portrait of Fireworks over Seattle by Ms. Amato's fifth grade class.
Planning out colors ...
Acrylic gel medium is our "glue" of choice.
Ms. Wilder's fifth grade class's collage; the background is layers of tissue paper. Students chose a state and wrote about what they would like to change in America. They added a monument, logo or drawing of something that reminds them of America. The final piece is coated in a layer of melted wax covering the entire surface.
Chalk drawings by 2nd grade students on wood.
I love the intense colors ...
More melted wax to seal in the drawing.
I added a small mirror and a wood frame!
Wood relief sculptures in the style of Louise Nevelson.
Decided on white instead of black to emphasis the play of shadows.
Its not in the picture, but I had a parent make a lovely simple wood frame for this. I find it a really striking, large, modern piece that was totally a result of the kids creativity!

It is auction time at North Beach Elementary. Here's a look at what the 3rd and 4th graders have created.
First step is collaging tissue paper with acrylic matte medium.
Everyone creates a crow for the (yarn) wires.
Ms. May's 3/4 grade class, "Birds on a Wire " is ready!
A sunrise background for Ms. Dunwoodie's 3rd grade class.
Mr. Paul's 4th grade class busy painting daisies.

Paintings and drawings inspired by the Spanish artist Joan Miro always have fabulous results with the kids. These are done by my home school class. The students range in age from 8-11.
