Did your group enjoy working on this project? This was a very nice way to combine art projects with the themes for our school this year.
Participants: There are 28 different works of art. Each one was created by a homeroom of 16 – 24 students. I have taken photos of the work as well as each homeroom with their work. I also had them answer the questions explaining their piece and will be sending that along with each piece.
What is your art about? We knew that it was going to be on a model rocket ship so we wanted it to be about space. On the sheet it also said that it needed to be about respect and responsibility so we put it in space because that is were a rocket goes.
Our school’s theme this year is respect and responsibility. Each trimester we focus on how students can show this through self, others and the environment. Each grade was given a different component of this – 6th grade – environment, 7th grade – self, and 8th grade – others. I will be sending along a handout that was given to each homeroom to use in completing this project.
