The Art Room at the Intermediate Center has been busy with all little artists making art for both Hispanic Heritage Month (October) and Native American Heritage Month (November).
Students have been using their knowledge of lines, shapes, and color theory to create their one of a kind Amate Bark Painting (Hispanic Heritage Art). Students learned that the paper that was used by Mexican Artists is made from the Amate tree. The bark is peeled, boiled, stripped, pounded, and placed flat to dry. Very colorful images of flowers and animals were painted on this brown handcrafted paper.
Third grade students will be learning about Totem Poles and creating their own one of a kind totem pole out of paper for the month of November!
