World Art Project

Has your child told you about our World Art Project? 

This is another Projects by Jen online project. This project is a collaborative project with 23 other classrooms around the world to create a rendition of Vincent Van Gogh's, Starry Night. Our class is responsible for piece number 10. We spent some time before spring break coloring our pieces so we could send them out to the other participating classes. Our group has classes from pre-kindergarten through 6th grade from places such as: North Carolina, California, and New Jersey and as far away as Canada and Australia. 

We also filled out an "All about Us" sheet that was sent along with our artwork. As our pieces come in we will place them on top of the matching section on our World Art Project board in the hall along with the information that each class sends us. 

On Friday, we Skype'd with a 1st grade class from Connecticut that is also part of the project but from a different group (There are 10 different groups of 24 participating) to compare our art work to theirs. We also discussed facts about our classrooms, schools cities and local weather with each other.

Here's what our project looks like now. We're about 1/2 way to having it completed.
