Fifth grade explored metal tooling this spring. They each developed their own radially symmetrical design to create these brilliant pieces of art.
Leonore visited third grade twice to help with a collaborative weaving. Here is our finished product!
All grades explored printmaking this spring in the LES art room. Here are some examples of our beautiful work.
Leonore from Leverett Crafts & Arts Center came to visit today in the art room. She taught us some new things about weaving. We started a classroom weaving on a loom she created for us. She also taught us how to make homemade ropes! It was a lot of fun. We hope she comes back soon. Stay tuned for more pics of our finished weavings.
Animals and Art, our music and art show this year was well attended. If you couldn’t make it that evening, here is a little highlight for your enjoyment. Hope all the clay projects made it home in one piece.

Students created interesting sculptures using a found object. They were creative in the way they looked at the cup shape, attached cups together, and used cutting tools.
Multiple grades have been exploring how to create winter scenes with different techniques and materials.
Students in PreK, K, 1st and 2nd grades collected objects from their hikes on Mountain day and then created beautiful pieces of art to take home with them. It was a fun day, seeing the students out in nature and exploring the woods with them. They were thrilled to fill their paper bags with fallen leaves, pinecones, pine needles, rocks, moss, bark and other cool finds. We sorted the objects in their bags in the art room to share with other classes. Students then enjoyed making leaf rubbings, decorating leaves and bark, making sun catchers, leaf collages and yarn wrapped sticks. It was a really special day, one I was honored to be a part of.
We are so excited to plant our pinwheels on Monday!!
