That’s right, folks! Happy halls make happy holidays – at least for this art teacher. Throughout Harmar and Washington Elementary Schools this month, students have been creating seasonal artwork to help spread the cheer throughout the two school buildings.
“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful…” couldn’t ring more true for our fantastic kindergarten artists who have just finished up their warm fireplace collages. Check out the artwork of Mrs. Halliday’s, Mrs. Conrad’s, Mrs. Eichhorn’s, and Mrs. Haught’s classes for your cup of cheer.
The 1st graders are still busily exploring their creative energies, but will soon be finishing their painted evergreen trees after reading the The Polar Express and recognizing just how many different tints and shades there can be of just one color!
If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, you’ll definitely want to check out the snowy scenes created by our 2nd and 4th graders. Two very different projects, both filled with glorious, white, fluffy snow. (More classes of artwork pending, come back for more soon!)
In case you haven’t quite caught that elusive gingerbread man, you might- just might-catch him (or her!) if you can in the prints made by our 3rd graders in Mrs. Clarke’s and Mrs. Tornes’s classes.
And if you happen to feel Scrooge-ish this holiday season, we’ve got something for you, too. The 5th graders have been hard at work drawing and painting their highly expressive self-portraits in the comic book style. There are many more of these to come, too. I can’t wait to see how they turn out!
While our halls may not quite be adorned like yours this holiday season, it’s pretty safe to say that we will “deck the halls” as best we can!
