Mrs. Patrick's class completed a special final art project that is being displayed hanging from the ceiling outside of the Northern Trails Media Center. Check out the video link below to learn more about it.
I cannot wait to see these hardworking and compassionate artists as sixth graders.
Fifth graders wrapped up their fabulous semester of art with a magically, mythical project. Time sure flew by. I am so impressed by this class of hardworking and creative artists. I cannot wait to see them as sixth graders. Until then, I leave you with a link to a slideshow featuring the Michigan dragons that they designed and published in mock National Geographic articles.

This fine group of sixth grade Huskies is wrapping up their last week of art at Northern Trails. Our time together absolutely flew by. This impressive group of hardworking working students have proven to be kind, motivated and always up for a challenge. They are going out with a bang this year. In art class, they learned how to mix tints, tones, and shades of colors. Using a black and white photo of a critically endangered specie as inspiration, they assessed its value scale and created a monochromatic painting of the animal. This challenging project called on them to apply everything they learned in art over the last two years. They have learned that artwork is created for many different purposes, including to inspire compassion and spark interest in a topic. Students read about the endangered specie in their painting, and collectively as a sixth grade created the movie featuring their artwork, to educate others about these beautiful creatures.
I will miss this special group of artists dearly, and I hope they will continue to explore visual arts classes in middle school.
Enjoy their movie below!
