6th grade

We have just finished a lesson for Valentines day.  Jim Dine has done a series of hearts on different colorful backgrounds.  We mimicked his style of painting for this assignment. The results are colorful and lovely.  We said good bye to Ms. Tucker our student teacher from KSU today.  We loved having her in the 6th grade class room.  Good luck Ms. Tucker!

Attention all grades:

Dear Dickerson Parents,

Due to inclement weather, CCSD is cancelling ALL after school and evening activities except for ASP for today, Tuesday, January 16, 2018.  However, although ASP will remain open, parents are strongly encouraged to pick up their children as soon as possible.  In addition, the district and superintendents office will be monitoring the weather situation and they hope to make a decision regarding tomorrow by 10 pm this evening.  Please stay tuned.

8th grade/Q2

We started our ceramics unit today.  Clay was rolled into 1/4 in. slabs.  Students used templates to cut the pieces of the cake slice they will be making.  These will be assembled starting tomorrow.  Details will be added this week as these will be cake slices that open and close.  Finally, they will be glazed using low fire ceramic glazes.

6th Grade art/Q2

We are finishing up our abstract “Highraff drawings.”  Our next assignment will take a while to complete.  We will be creating a cartoon character and putting that character into a comic strip.  Finally, we will be creating the character out of clay.  The final step will be to glaze the bisque fired character.

This is the last week of quarter 1, art.  We will be finishing the oil pastel project as well as glazing the pumpkins just out of the kiln.  If the pumpkins do not get fired until late in the week, you may stop by next week during Connections to pick up your pumpkin.  Thank you for a great first quarter!
