Canvas Painting Auction Winners!

Canvas Painting Auction Winners!

For our auction this year I donated a canvas painting class. I had three 2nd graders and one 4th grader attend the canvas painting session. I love painting on canvas with acrylics, so this was  real treat for me too! We had a great time and I think the students learned a little bit too. 🙂

Fourth grade did a weaving project using straws as their loom.  Although you can make a loom out of many things I’ve found the straws to be a cheap and effective way to show the students how to build a loom.  The students created pockets with their weaving, and we talked about how this type of art is very functional.  Some students added a closure to the top, while others left it open with only ties along the side.
