In Mrs. Argenziano's Grade 2 - Grade 5 classes the students began a unit on Cartooning and Animation. They watched an inspiring video interview with Rebecca Sugar, the creator of the cartoon Steven Universe. Then they were to practice creating cartoon characters by following how-to videos. They concluded by coloring their piece in the medium of their choice.
Mrs. Argenziano's PreK -& Grade 1 wanted to share their Visual Arts Remote Learning. The students practiced their geometric shapes and in this drawing lesson created robots from these shapes. The students added details in lines and shapes to create buttons and extra features on their creations. They concluded with coloring in the medium of their choice.
We joined the Rainbow Challenge to spread the message "everything will be okay", hoping to brighten everyone's day!
