4th Grade Team Building Activity- Stenciled Tie Dye Shirts
We are all so happy to be back in the CLIC Room creating. Students have been coming to CLIC during the school day. It feels great to see smiles on faces getting hands dirty and learning by doing,. I am looking forward to working with your children before, during, and after school. CLIC Clubs are set to start in October. Online sign up's will start next week.
Fourth graders have been in the CLIC room beginning a series of class team builder activities. We just finished creating class shirts. Students love this project learning about textile design and the process of dyeing fabric and stenciling and stamping designs. Using fabric dye is unpredictable and using stencils is predictable so even if the colors were not exactly what was desired the stencils pull the whole design together. The shirts turned out awesome! I love seeing students proudly wearing their class team shirts.
Since many children from other grades have asked if they can make a shirt, I will make a textile design class before and after school soon.

Signing up will allow me to help your child through email check in's and stay connected through optional live Zoom work sessions. It will also help me in creating an online film festival where Proctor Students can show off their creations.
Landscape Painting Class, Thursdays 3PM
Artists have been working away at painting our first landscape painting on canvas using acrylic paint, palette knives, and brushes. Although the subject is the same, every painting is as different as the artist. We learned how to use the easel, sketch out compositions with vine charcoal, mix custom paints, use thin and thick body paints, and the results are stunning! Students got to pick their final landscape painting and will painting those for an extended three sessions.
5th Grade Science Ecosystem 3-D Cardboard Murals
Mrs. Boucher's and Mrs. Lampe's Classes are coming to CLIC during their science block to create scientific displays. They researched specific ecosystems and the food chains within them and are now creating huge murals to share their research. Students are working on ten teams creating 3-D murals out of cardboard. Each mural represents an ecosystem. The students sketched out their plans and are making the animals and ecosystem land and water features using paper sculpting techniques. We will finish the murals in a muted color scheme echoing the natural textures and colors of the cardboard. The goal is to have all of the 10 murals work cohesively together to represent the earth's diversity.
