Student Work and Art
Students and parents came to school on Lunar New Year to learn about the special day. They created fun Lunar New Year Crafts. They also met and listened to the author Aram Kim. She read her book "Sunday Funday in Koreatown" to parents and students and even showed them how to draw the main character.
Students learned about Martin Luther King Jr. They listened to a read aloud of Martins Big Words and worked on vocabulary, they did a STEM project to create a podium and created a mural.
Yayoi Kusama Pumpkins Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist who is sometimes called “The Princess of Polka Dots”. Although she makes lots of different types of art, paintings, sculptures, performances and installations, they have one thing in common-DOTS! For this project, the students learned all about Yoyoi Kusama and her artwork. We focused on how she uses dots to show depth in her pumpkins. We also noticed the different patterns in the background and foreground. Next, we drew pumpkins on colored construction paper, added dots with black paint and oil pastels for the patterns in the background and foreground. Mrs. Weiss-Visual Arts 1st Grade
