Second Grade Cross
This beautiful cross looks like etched silver.....but its not. Second graders created these clay tiles using the bottoms of their shoes for the texture. We then fired the tiles and painted them black and accented the design with silver. Thank you Mr. Taylor for making the wood cross. The tiles were then attached to the cross and each student signed their name to this lovely work of art.
This is the 5th graders auction project. Isn't it a masterpiece? We used the theme "the sun, the moon and the stars" . Each student created a design and embossed the design on a piece of thin copper. They then painted vaseline wherever they wanted the design to shine. Each student used liver of sulphur to patina the metal. The final step was buffing the metal with ultra fine steel wool. Thanks to Mrs Rulison and her father for creating the frame and putting the mirror inside of it for us. This collective work of art is truly extraordinary.
These projects will be auctioned off this Saturday at the Fall Extravaganza.
