Sixth graders were asked the question, “If you could have a super power, what would it be?” Then, they were asked to draw themselves as a super hero. The results were extremely imaginative.
Once their super hero was drawn, the students crafted tunnel books from paper, dividing them into three parts: foreground, middleground, and background. Students discussed several details they could add to their tunnel book such as the setting, or headquarters; a trusty sidekick; and a vehicle or mode of transportation. Some students continued thinking outside the box and made very detailed tunnel books.
I especially enjoy how each tunnel book tells a story. Great job sixth grade!
Sixth graders made these wonderful prints after carving a 6×6″ piece of linoleum. Students worked from a photograph to help capture details of their face. They carefully carved around the shadows and lines of their facial features, leaving the shadows alone so they’d print black.
They did a fabulous job on this challenging project!
Sixth graders in Mr. Scesney’s class worked from an expressive photograph to create these fabulous linoleum block prints. Students carved the negative space with linoleum cutters – making sure to carve safely. They printed their linoleum blocks with acrylic ink on paper personally selected by the artist. I think each print was a success and showcased the artistic talent at Vienna Elementary.
Mr. Scesney’s sixth grade class at Vienna Elementary School used drawing and coloring techniques to transform themselves into a super hero!
