Students just completed a Whimsical Zentangle Selfie. We will be making a larger Zentangle using the concept of postive and negative space.
MUSART (4th-6th): Tuesday
Musart is starting at the beginning of the time line. We are studying about the music and art of the Middle Ages. We've discussed the difference in society in the Early, Late and High Middle Ages. They have a good understanding of how a child's life would have been during this time period. Each student is making a personalized Coat of Arms that represents themself or their family in the art portion of the class.
