The Kindergarteners had a blast exploring color mixing to make secondary colors from primaries. With their newly invented colors, each student made a unique creation which was then cut into a circle and attached to a canvas to represent the whole grade. This 18" x 24" canvas will add just the right pop of color to any room of your home!
Birds on a Wire
First graders used small shapes of paper to let their image fly "free as a bird". Each student made his or her own beautiful bird that was attached to a canvas. So many beautiful colors blend together to make this one of a kind creation a special keepsake for these budding artists.
Up, Up, and Away
By contributing his or her own unique thumbprint, the 2nd graders have created a masterpiece that made them soar with pride! This amazingly colorful hot air balloon on canvas will brighten your day!
One of the highlights of the 3rd grade Social Studies curriculum is the study of our beloved city, Boston. Just as Boston stands as a unique and special place, each third grader added his or her unique fingerprint and helped to paint the Boston skyline.
Fourth grade artists study weaving as an accompaniment to their Social Studies unit on the Industrial Revolution and the Lowell Mills. Each fourth grader painted his or her own unique paper strip which was then woven together and affixed to a glass vase. This set of 3 can be used in so many fun decorative ways! Try adding lights, and LED candle, or flowers for a truly unique arrangement.
Metal Repousse, the process of pushing and pressing sheet metal, has been used as far back as ancient Egypt. In connection with their studies of Egyptian history, 5th graders each drew a design into sheet metal, creating an amazing 3D design. The metal squares were tiled together, framed, and then signed (on the back of the frame). What a special keepsake from their final year at Bates!
