First graders read the book Snowmen At Night and brainstormed ideas of what they would do at night if they were snowmen. They illustrated their ideas in art and then wrote about them in their classroom. Their illustrations showed snowmen sledding, skating, drinking hot cocoa, and giving Valentines.... This collaborative art and writing project was lots if fun!!

Fifth graders painted watercolor warm skies and cool water backgrounds. Then they designed and carved printing plates of cityscapes. They printed cityscapes on the warm halves of their paintings then created a mirror image print by folding and printing into the cool painted water. The results are some beautiful reflections!
