Time for a change! Now, instead of the self-portraits, the 5th grade has to trace their hands and color them in. Some fifth graders have made great "Hand Portraits." Here are some models that other kids might want to try.

The fifth graders used very different materials, from pencil to marker to paint. The paper was usually white, but some people used different color paper. The ones that caught other's eyes usually had a variety of colors, an interesting background, and eye-catching ideas. Ms. Palefsky thinks everyone had amazing color and outstanding ideas. Do you think so?

When people work together it's a beautiful thing.

After studying Greek mythology, 4th graders applied their art & design skills to create ads that make an interesting point: Even today, ancient Greek mythology can inspire contemporary culture.

In this project, we made a product or a symbol that represented one of the gods or goddesses. We learned that some of the products already made are based on gods and goddesses, so we thought we could do our own and be creative. My friends, Gianna and Alessandra, made their own company called Persephone's Seeds, because she was the Greek goddess of Spring.
