Our new Timberlake

Last year, the Bob Timberlake Foundation awarded Bolivia an ongoing grant to create a collection of artwork at our school. We're very excited to have received our newest print, Grandfather Mountain, which was beautifully framed by the wonderful folks over at Murray Art & Frame in Leland. Take a look next time you're in our front office!

El Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead Designs

Third graders did these Dia de los Meurtos skulls awhile back for the Mexican Day of the Dead. We learned about this holiday by looking at different types of artwork and watching videos like this one. We then used oil pastels and paint to create our own Dia de los Meurtos design!

Dream Monsters

First graders have been working on these dream monsters, which are about ready to go into the kiln. The idea is their monster goes in a special spot next to their bed, and will scare away any bad dreams that try to come. Thanks to Mrs. Engrim for the inspiration!
