I am thrilled to announce that several of our third graders were invited to display their work at the Montbello library. Here is more from Harmony Artist, Adam Buehler, about this experience.
“Before the winter holiday break the 3rd grade classes were working on their personal narrative storytelling and descriptive writing skills. Our writing and art project was based around important family stories- telling them in words and pictures. I showed the classes photos from a large sculpture at the Denver Art Museum that explored themes of family. Then the students thought about their own family stories- some sad, some happy- and started to write them out. Several drafts and many hours in class with their teachers turned their first ideas into very well written narratives. Then came time for illustration. I worked with the students to highlight an important scene from their story and turn this into an illustrated painting. The students learned different watercolor painting techniques to express their story through art. We partnered with the local Montbello Branch of the Denver Public Library and were able to display some of the best student artwork and stories there for the public to see. It was such a joy to share the students hard work in art and writing with the rest of our community.” ~Adam
Way to go, third graders! You make our DCIS community proud.
