Soaring with Excellence
Elson's 2015 Spring Art Show
Kindergarten is Learning About Culture :-)
This winter, Mrs. O'Hare and Ms. Wilenchik's Kindergarten classes studied art of making masks from Africa. We viewed many examples and talked about where and when we have seen masks in real life. Their design had to have symmetry (meaning the same items on each side), have color, and have 3 dimensional effects such as feathers and beads.
In many cultures masks are used to tell stories, celebrate important events or teach a lesson. Our students designed their own African masks with a quick personal narrative about it. Some examples were "I Am a King from Egypt" and "I Am a Scary Monster to Teach People How to Be Nice."
