3rd Grade

Clay Slabs with Native American Symbols

Chalk Jungle Animals

Mandalas with Sand Painting 

We have been learning about Native American forms of art, including weaving, sand painting and pottery. We wove pieces of yarn into burlap. Learn more about weaving here.

We learned about the artist and author Faith Ringgold. After reading Tar Beach as a class, we created paintings of special places. In the book, the main character flies over some special places that we would like to own. Some of us included places we would like to fly over to make them ours. 

We created self-portraits of ourselves with pets or animals we like.
