As we’ve transitioned to remote learning for our students, our teachers have gotten creative with their lessons. Sarah’s art classes have gotten especially creative by encouraging the students to use found objects to create their projects. One activity used household items to create a color wheel. Clothing, books, and more can be used for a quick and easy lesson on color!
Sarah also created a beautiful and informative video on environmental art; kids took inspiration from nature and went outside to gather things from nature to create temporary installations. The students’ creative use of flowers, branches, and other materials should inspire you to create your own installation. This is a great way to show love to our friends and neighbors while social distancing. Last week, school administrators surprised students with care packages of graph paper, DIY whiteboards, some art supplies, and special treats. We can’t wait to see what the students create!
