What Challenges You?

For our first collaborative project of the year, all the students (and some teachers too!) worked on a feather to be part of two giant wings, which are now on display in the back hallway near the restrooms. The students learned a little song about tints and shades (found here on YouTube, beware it’s catchy!) and then used tempera paint to color their feather from light to dark. We finished off our decorations on the feathers with white colored pencil. Because our conceptual lens this year is “challenge”, we each wrote something on the feather that we were going to challenge ourselves with this year. The finished artwork looks amazing on the wall, so be sure to stop by with your child and see if they can find their feather!
