Please help and encourage your kids to keep their art safe. They all wanted to take their art home ASAP, but we definitely want to keep our pieces intact so we can show off their favorite at the end of the semester. Thank you.

When the early Spaniards came to Mexico they encountered the Huichol (wet-chol) people who lived in the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico. The Sierra Madre mountains are the large mountain range that you can see on the map running north and south. The Huichol Indians who lived in the mountains made God’s eyes (or Ojos de Dios) to watch over those who prayed at their altars. They were woven on to criss-crossing sticks, joining in the center. The ends of the sticks represented the basic elements–earth, water, wind, and fire.

Last week we discussed what we thought art might be and Teacher Melissa posted pictures of various art throughout history on the walls for everyone to look at. Many of the images the students recognized, others they didn't. Most of them were able to point out at least one that they liked. We also made our portfolios to store the art projects that will be created throughout the semester.
Here are a few that were either recognized or just liked because they were neat.

With in the next 2 weeks we are going to be using oil pastels. We as a class only have one set and I will bring mine from home but if your families have a set please bring them so our project will go faster. When students have to wait for materials out takes a long time to do an art project. Bring them starting this week and we can put your name on them and return them when we are finished.

Reminder that art students need a white t-shirt for our last art project. Please bring them in.
Next week April 2nd Please bring a picture of yourself. It should be an action picture of you doing something. Not a portrait. Bring several and we can help you decide.
