It's unfortunate that my Friday classes are missing out on so many days in the Art Room. Between Professional Development Days, Storms and Holidays, they miss out on many classes. That's one of the reasons that many 5th Graders haven't finished their Dia De Los Muertos, or Day Of The Dead drawings. The Day Of The Dead, is not a sad or scary holiday. It started in Mexico, and is about honoring and celebrating people we have lost. Mexican art made for Dia De Los Muertos shows skeletons either celebrating or doing everyday things. 5th graders did the same.
The student I am recognizing this week can be very helpful. They always do a quality job and work quickly, and for that reason they are one of the few students who has completed their drawing. Nice work CS in Mrs. Gerrish's 5th Grade class, Student Artist of the Week!
