Creative Minds: Spotlight on work at Gardner Pilot Academy
DayMarie – 5th Grade (Tempera paint and watercolors)
Students created superheroes based on their cultural background and powers that the students felt best represented what they looked for in a hero. The students first created their superhero and then created the world in which their superhero lived.
Kenny Deleon – 5th Grade (pastels and markers)
Students learned about Arabic calligraphy and common themes in Arabic art, including shading techniques and patterns. Students created their own names in Arabic and then in English.
Maria Camilla Herrera – 4th Grade (Construction paper and recycled materials)
