Southside Parents & Families,

This March, all grades (preK-5) will create artworks for the Art to Remember fundraiser.  Art to Remember provides families with an easy way to have their students’ artwork turned into some pretty cool items, such as iPhone covers.  If you love your students’ artworks and want to take them with you everywhere, you are in luck, that is exactly what Art to Remember helps you do!

1st grade Animal Masks

Art can also be used for celebrations and special occasions.  Art made for those purposes is called: ceremonial.

Masks are ceremonial artworks.  Masks can change the way people look, act, speak, and feel.  Often, masks are used to celebrate something special.  What animals are these masks celebrating?  Do these masks have symmetry?

The Yupik Native Americans are using masks in their celebration. Which animals are they celebrating? Are the dancers acting differently while wearing their masks?

Have you ever worn a mask?  What was it of?  How did you act with your mask on?

  • Which animals do you see?

K-5 Collaborative “Team” project

Have you ever been part of a team? A family is a type of small team, while a company is a large team. You can be on a sports team, an academic team, or a team just for a board game.

This year, your class is your team. Your class will work and play together all year. You’ll create a pennant to represent what you bring to your class team.

What are you good at doing? Are you hard-working, smart, strong, opinionated? Are you patient, thoughtful, a good listener? Are you good at reading, working together, drawing? What skills do you have that could help your team?

How would you show those skills on your pennant?

1st gr.- Summer Stories

What did you do over summer break? Did you take a trip? Visit family? Play with friends? Artists make artwork showing how they spend their time. The artist, Mary Cassatt, is known for painting families, especially parents with their children. What did this family do for their summer?

Who is shown in this artwork? Are they family? Where are they? What are they doing? What is the weather? What clues does Mary give you?

You will draw an artwork telling a story of something you did with your family this summer. Make sure to draw yourself and your family in your artwork. Show their bodies, faces, and clothes, don’t draw stick people!
