View Of the Watershed 2021
We have been learning about the animals that live in the Eel River Watershed! Each student researched an animal that lives in our watershed. Then they wrote an essay about their animal. Next, they each made an Adobe Spark Video about their animal. Then we got to play with a new art medium: Water Color Pencils. Finally, we learned about Perspective and explored what the watershed would look like from their animal's perspective.
The animal research project takes about 6 weeks to complete, so our classroom has been All About the Animals of the Eel River Watershed. The kids feel possessive of 'their' animal and know all about who eats who. This art project was a great culminating event for this unit and the kids were all very proud of their work.
Mrs. Willits' Art Gallery Class of 2019-20
We read the story A Life In Color about the life of artist Sonia Delaunay. Then they learned about the art concept of Abstraction. Next students drew an Abstract Memory from their life.

Students worked in pairs to create a unique artistic collaboration. Students first learned about lines, shape, color, value, texture and space. Then they worked together to create these unique and fascinating works of art. It was a great way to build friendships and learn to speak their minds and also compromise.
