I found a fun art activity for students where you make a collage at home using pictures and words. A collage is the assemblage of different materials. All they needed at home is scissors, tape or glue and a piece of paper for their background. They were encouraged to use magazines, newspapers and/or cardboard food packaging ( like cereal boxes ).
In Art the students learned about the Hearts In The Window movement which is spreading around the world. It encourages people to display something heart-shaped in their home where neighbours and passersby can see, in the hopes of raising a few spirits during these challenging times. It also shows support for essential workers like doctors, nurses and grocery workers.
The students in Division 10 were learning about the British artist Andy Goldsworthy. He uses natural materials like ice, branches, leaves and rocks to create art in natural and urban settings. The students then created their own art in the style of the artist. Below are photos of their creative work. Well done.
The class went on a field trip to Burnaby Village Museum and participated in the Winter Wonder school program. Students rode the vintage carousel, visited a blacksmith, toured historic buildings and spent time in a silent movie theatre. A special thanks to the parents who drove and helped with supervision. Have a relaxing and safe Winter Break.
