Northern Trails 5th and 6th graders have been working hard in the art room to create beautiful pieces for our Original Works Fundraiser. They learned how to draw from a reference image and create works of art that will print well on Original Works products. This amazing fundraiser allows you to have your child's artwork printed on a number of wonderful products. Information regarding ordering instructions and product delivery dates will be coming home in mid-November. Here is a sneak peek at their fabulous works of art:
Sixth graders were Inspired by the Chinese dragon which is a composite of real animals:
The body of a snake, scales of a carp, tail of a whale, face of a camel, claws of an eagle, feet of a tiger, and the eyes of a lobster. Chinese dragons are occasionally depicted with bat-like wings. They created their own Michigan dragons, composed of animals found in Michigan. They designed these animals to survive in a Michigan ecosystem.
Paying homage to the artist Beauvais Lyons, who creates artwork around mock academia, the students created mock National Geographic articles describing how their dragons were discovered. Click the link to see their work: 6th Grade Mock National Geographic
