A look into Learning Labs

Georgia O'Keeffe continues to bring inspiration to the learning labs as students continue to create interesting masterpieces. We will continue next week to complete the project. Take a stroll through the story studio to see the finished masterpieces.

Students were inspired to create in outdoor learning labs. With paint, watercolors, recycled markers, bingo dobbers and collage pieces students created mixed media art pieces. It is safe to say no two pieces looked the same! A true testament to what art should be. Some pieces are on display in the rock room. Stop and take a peak!

Jazz could be heard throughout learning labs this week as we listened to and sketched the instruments we heard and how the music made us feel!

We are excited to begin Earth Day projects next week!

Important!!! Important!!! Important!!!
