Dear Carson Graham Community,
It's been a while since I last reached out via my blog and I think it's time I did! In the absence of my regular classroom visits, I asked teachers to reach out with some of the innovative things that are occurring in their virtual classrooms. We have so many great things happening that are helping our students to feel connected and supported while learning!
I hope that you and your loved ones are all safe!
Face the Foilage
Art Teacher, Ms. FitzGibbon did this Face the Foliage assignment with her Art 9 class where students were tasked to create a portrait out of blossoms and other natural items. The results were stunning (and far exceeded the humble example that the she had created to illustrate what she meant)!
Explore the Medium of Clay
Recently, Ms. FitzGibbon arranged a contactless pick-up and drop-off for clay for the Ceramics 10 course. After giving students some directions on how to find household clay materials and work from a home studio environments, students were asked to explore through the medium of clay how the past few months has affected them and express this in a form of their choice. Some were inspired to be representative in human form, such as the work from Tamika Pacris, Sakiah Ela, and Madison Meyer, while others chose to represent more figural states of being, such as the work from Aria Tajalli, who represented his feelings as that of a sleepy bear.
