This week’s “Artists of the Week” are Lucy Lindner, third Grade at Pelican Elementary School and Sutton Smith, third grade at Crescent Elementary School.
In Mrs. Roche’s art class, the students learned about radial symmetry or radial balance and painted a paper plate with a variety of colors and patterns to show this concept. Next they learned about weaving vocabulary and used a template to create a loom with their plates that would be used for weaving. They used colored yarn to warp their looms and then used a variety of colored yarns as the weft in their circular weaving. The students’ work is beautiful and they have received a number of compliments from both children and adults alike.
