I hope everyone is enjoying their time off over the holidays. When we return to school, we will be diving into several fun projects with paint. If you would like to learn more about paint and painting, take some time to explore online. This link will take you to an online museum that has exhibits on pigments, painting techniques, and the history of painting. I am excited to start painting, and I will see you soon!

|Ms. Estin's Golden Amulets|
Ms. Estin's 2nd grade class just finished reading The Legend of Food Mountain. In Art Class, we have looked at artwork of the Aztecs featured in this story. We have been planning an Aztec Warrior project, and we compared symbols used by the Aztec, Inca, Maya and Zapotec peoples. The students used clay to make a disk, and they carved Aztec symbols into the surface to make an amulet. They used patterns to create borders. When they dried, we painted them gold. The students did a wonderful job on what was their first clay project of the year! Afterwards, we tried a project that was designed for 6th graders! Deep Space Sparkle, a popular art blog, featured a lesson plan that involved drawing some colorful Aztec warriors. The 2nd graders tackled the upper-grade project, and did some stellar work!
