8th grade wrapped up the Trick Photography unit with Light painting- the ULTIMATE team building activity. We use only smart devices for this activity. Two apps that were most successful included PABLO and Slow Shutter Cam. If you haven't tried this yet, wait no longer! Get some glow sticks, a dark space, and download those apps!

This project was inspired by Sacramento Loaves and Fishes, Doug Winter, and the words from the stories of these unsheltered people.

Leading into winter break, nothing beats an outdoor photography project. This year the weather was crisp and clear and I thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors! Check out these amazing words the students created from images they took around campus.

The Humane Society was the first advocacy project that the 7th graders took on. Students chose a specific fight to represent with an animal collage created in the style of Deborah Shapiro. Once collages we created, the were published using their hashtags to advocate for each fight. So proud of these collages!

It's always amazing to see the progression of growth mindset students experience when it comes to the process of creating plaster face masks. Understandably, there is fear of the unknown, and the anxiety that comes with that runs high. Trusting another person with your face and breathing capacity is no joke. However, the students more than prevail and feel a huge sense of accomplishment that shines brightly on their completed masks!

Ms. Neary decided to have students participate in a wacky planting experiment in Science using all of her excess Cheeto dust (she has a Cheeto problem :)). She decided to plant Marigold since students are also studying The Day of the Dead in Expressions- YAY!!!.Therefore, the 7th graders created skull planters in Expressions to be used for the planting experiment in Science. Perfect activity for an Art Challenge Day!
