About: We were given the theme: Stories of the American Revolution. This theme coincided with what the Fourth grade students were studying in Social Studies. Each fourth grade student researched a person and/or event from the American Revolution. In art class students created a drawing based on what they had researched. Forty pieces of art were chosen and four pieces of art were arranged to create a quilt like square.

Clockwise

Emma: My artwork is about Jack Joett. Jack did the same thing as Paul Revere except Jack rose 40 miles through the back woods of Virginia to warn people that the British were coming. After Jack rode his ride, he moved to Kentucky and bred horses. Jack also started the horse industry with some other people in Kentucky.

Ella: My artwork is about Thomas Jefferson. He wrote the Declaration of Independence. He believed that there shouldn’t be “Taxation without Representation.” In this picture I drew a portrait of Thomas Jefferson and what he wrote and what he believed in and his name.

Mason: I was thinking about what to draw but then I remembered the Declaration of Independence and wanted to show Thomas Jefferson and how he helped to finish this document.

Pawanart: My artwork is about George Washington. He was the first president of the U.S. He was called “father of our country” and he was a strong leader that the new country needed.

Clockwise:

Kyla: I wrote the flags and names of each country to show separation. My picture has a statement, “Give me liberty or give me death,” this means the person stating that is saying that each side should be able to rule themselves and be free. One side (British) wanted to rule over the colonists and tell them what to do.

Zayaan: My artwork is about King George lll. King George in the picture is knighting someone but see’s a disturbance. He loves riches!!!

Yashvi: My artwork has 5 different pictures which tell about 5 different intolerable acts. My artwork tells about the paper act, stamp act, tea act, port act, and marriage act. A fact about the intolerable act is that the columnists were so annoyed with the British, and when they heard about the tea act, they caused the Boston Tea party. The intolerable acts where really intolerable!

Sophia: My artwork is about Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson in my picture is drafting the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson soon was the 3rd president.

Clockwise:

Anna: I’m doing the French and Indian war. One cool fact is that I did the British because the British won the French and Indian War.

Riya: Nathan Hale is holding a document in my artwork. He is a patriot spy, and works for George Washington. He was spying on the British, and got captured, and hanged.

Yolany: My artwork is about the Boston Tea Party. It’s also about how the Son’s of Liberty disguised themselves as Native Americans so that colonists wouldn’t get in trouble but the Native American’s would and that’s why there’s Native Americans in the boat.

Emmie: My artwork is about Thomas Jefferson and all of his important things he had. His life was also in this and his with Martha. The biggest thing is his foldable desk and the most important part is the Declaration of Independence signed by Thomas Jefferson.
