Specialty Spotlight: Art
In the upper elementary, we have been tying in many art projects with grade-level social studies.
In Grade 3, students created mini-murals and ceramic dwellings for their Kumeyaay dioramas.
The Grade 4 class has been studying California history, so its art focus has been on creating scenes of California’s central valley, mountain, coastal, and desert landscapes.
In Grade 5, students drew North American explorer galleons.
Sixth graders created ceramic vessels and temple pop-ups while studying the ancient Greek civilization and are currently working on Egyptian sarcophagi.
