Art Club Update: A Sample of Tuesdays After School

My First Art Club assignment was to create centerpieces for the North Providence Holiday Ball.  We cut cardboard into triangles, used masking tape to create a pyramid shape and then paper mached them.  The faded color from top to bottom was my favorite part.

My second art club assignment was to cut up a 8'x10" photo from the National Geographic website into one inch squares.  I then cut A 24"X30" piece of white paper  into three inch squares.  I numbered both sets and handed them out at random.  The students are using pencil to replicate the image they receive onto the paper.  And now they are slowly piecing together the image.
They are excited to see what emerges.

A new idea for a bulliten board.  Students get a "shout out" for good behavior, accomplishments etc.

That is so cool Ry. You have found away to run that program with very little cost and still get quality work out of the kids. Nice job.
