3rd Grade Art Exhibition

Our 3rd graders did a fantastic job showcasing their artistic creations at their gallery show yesterday. They presented their fish and biography works of art to parents, staff and students. I’m so proud of our 3rd grade artists! I have so loved collaborating with our 3rd grade teachers on this exciting science/ art/ writting project! An earlier post showcased a sneak peek at our recyclable creations. Now, take a look at our finished fish! fish Display 1 Fish display 2 fish display 3 Students designed a fish inspired by four adaptations, body shape, mouth, coloration, and reproduction. Students began by collected plastic recyclables to reuse in the creation of their fishes body.  Next, we used cardboard to create details like fins as well as a mouth. Thirdly, we layered plaster wrap over our fishes form to make them sturdy and ready for color. Lastly, we used different painting techniques to create our fish’s coloration.  Each fish was fashioned with features best suited to help it survive in their aquatic habitat. Arn’t they fantastic!
