The Neshobe students in Grade 4-6 are off to a strong start in their transition to choice-based art. It is a transition that will take some time but students have already made some great discoveries and created some exciting artwork. Below are just a few pictures of some of what has been created. Eventually we will work towards creating an online portfolio for each student and the students will be responsible for updating them with pictures and information about their work. Some students chose to display their work here at school. If you get a chance to check out the lobby you can view their work (in person) along with some information about each piece, including the title, medium (what it's made out of), and an "artists statement" describing their project.

Students in grades K-3 have been working on a variety of projects from learning about lines, shapes, patterns, and symmetry (by creating butterflies) to creating clay dinosaurs. Right now students in grade 1-3 are creating artwork inspired by the Mexican holiday "Day of the Dead".
