Students in Mrs. Martin's Kindergarten class last school year participated in a Connected Classroom project with High School Student in Apex, North Carolina. Our Kindergarten students drew monsters as part of a lesson on using different kinds of lines in a work of art. The Kindergarten students named their monsters and then I digitally sent the images to Ian Sands who teaches Art at Apex High School. He had a class of students create 3D clay versions of the monsters. He then had a Computer Graphic Design class create toy packages for the monsters to go into. The high school students did a fantastic job! See some of them at work on Mr. Sands blog - http://apexhsart.blogspot.com/2012/03/monsters-round-2-sculptures.html
The first round of clay monsters made were way too heavy to be shipped to our Kindergarten artists, so Mr. Sands had his second semester classes create smaller ones. We got out of school for Summer break before they did in North Carolina so the finished monsters were shipped to us a few weeks ago.
Today students got to take their original drawing and the 3D sculpture in a package home with them! They were very excited and thankful of the hard work done by their High School Partners!
Take a look at the slide show below with our little artists and their monsters!
I'm very excited to be again teaching at Roosevelt this year! The students and I have such fun, creative classes together. I love the enthusiasm of our Roosevelt Bears!
