The Art curriculum at the AJA is based on the Elements and Principles of Art and Design.
Our first element of art and Design this year is Space.
This year international Dot day is on September 15th. Our first Art project for this year is Ã¢â‚¬Å“DotsÃ¢â‚¬Â We looked at space, shape and color. We read the book Ã¢â‚¬Å“The DotÃ¢â‚¬Â by Peter Reynolds and then the third grade artists created their very own interpretations of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dots as MandalaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ¢â‚¬Â using compassÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and ultrafine sharpies to draw their beautiful elaborate designs and patterns in their own mandalaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s.
We had a fun activity of making tie-dye -shirts to wear to our field trips throughout the school year.
Come by and admire the AJA school wide Ã¢â‚¬Å“DotÃ¢â‚¬Â show in the Hallways in mid-September.
