It’s Original Works Time!

It’s that time of year:  time to make amazing art for our annual fundraiser with Original Works!  This company can print your child’s art on just about anything.  Cups, magnets, t-shirts, pot holders…. you get the idea!  These items make great gifts AND support your school!  WIN/WIN!

Students in grades kindergarten, first and second grade are making colorful self-portrait collages!  We started by experimenting with liquid watercolors using the primary colors.  It’s always fun to hear the squeals of excitement when we discover new colors!

Next, we created a frame, added our own image and a few details about US!  We also used paint sticks (they are new and amazing!) to add patterns, lines and colors.  THEY ARE ADORABLE.


Students in grade three, four and five are working on expressive self-portraits inspired by the book “Wonder” written and illustrated by RJ Palacio.  We started by reading the picture book, “We’re All Wonders” also by RJ Palacio.


We used liquid watercolors to paint our self-portraits using expressive colors.  Next, we added a frame and brainstormed positive words that describe our unique qualities.  THEY ARE FANTASTIC!



Keep your eyes out, parents!  You should be receiving a packet of information toward the end of October and how you can order items (and support our school)!
