Fifth Grade projects

One class in 5th grade is starting a Gnome 3-D project. They learned about Gnomes in literature form a slide show I prepared. They have paper mached 2 layers of newspapers and will paint with acrylic paints this week. Thanks to the blog,"There's a Dragon in my Art Room" for the inspiration.
Another class in 5th grade is finishing their print accordion books.
After making 8 prints, they cut up the prints. These were reassembled onto pages in an accordion 
book as mini compositions. The students added metallic sharpie to embellish the pages. Then they wrote about the compositions they chose.

And yet another class learned about the mythological creatures, dragons! They formed clay dragons, making sure to show texture. Their dragons could be fierce, silly or cute.
