5th Grade Commemorative Art Class of 2015

Here’s to the Little Bennett Elementary School Class of 2015! These awesome students are having their promotion today and so I’m excited to share their Commemorative Art Project! it has not been installed in the school yet, but it is scheduled for this week. So hopefully you’ll see it soon!

We looked at Mandalas, I introduced the concept behind them, and showed some big pieces of bottle cap artwork. Then together they came up with a design and executed their artwork. Here are all the classes’ designs, that will soon be hanging outside the Media Center!

Day 1: Individually, the students came up with radially symmetrical designs. I gave them polar graph paper to work on, and we talked about a color schemes. Then as a large group, we voted on one that everyone liked the most.
Day 2-4: In a small group, students worked with me, placing bottle caps (I glued after they left the room). The rest of the class worked on the radial symmetry names project.

    These are really beautiful, and what a great way to recycle! I always have TONS of old markers caps left over at the end of the year. Great work!
