The students in Mrs. Rotondo’s 6th grade art class have been hard at work this nine weeks, creating multiple art projects under one central theme.
“I asked my students to pick a theme they were interested in or passionate about at the beginning of the nine weeks,” said Mrs. Rotondo. “This is the theme they would use to inspire their clay sculptures and grid drawings.”
Her students chosen a variety of different themes, including mystical lizards, favorite TV show characters, NFL football, cats, things I love and I hate art.
Each student created a clay sculpture within their theme that they painted and were glaze-fired in the class kiln. They also did a pencil drawing, using the grid technique, of another image within their theme. Their drawings were then colored in using different shading and blending mediums such as charcoal, chalk or colored pencils.
The students artwork will be on display at the upcoming March Madness Community Night on Thursday, March 15th from 6-8 p.m. at the Elementary/Middle School.
