#TBT (Throwback Thursday)
With interdisciplinary connections to social studies, mathematics, and geography, students learned more about why Indianapolis is a great place to live! Students learned about their community and gained a sense of pride in both their city and their collaborative art. This installation hangs in our school lobby to welcome students, parents, and visitors for years to come! Even though the fourth-graders have now moved onto the intermediate school, they have no idea how impacting their mural has been just within this new school year. Our younger artists really look up to the artistic leadership of our older students!
|Students working together in the early stages of tile preparations. Students had to ensure the tiles matched up correctly.|
|We spent an entire week of classes in each fourth-grade classes practicing landmark sketches, learning about their significances, and learning how to collaborate to bring our ideas together to create a unified mural.|
|Students worked in tile teams to make sure their tiles matched their buddy tiles and had to make sure that they matched colors as well.|
|Work in progress.|
|The Patriot Art Club engaged in this enrichment mural and focused on celebrating the wonderful diversity that Indianapolis has to offer through different cultural landmarks as well as celebrate famous Hoosiers!|
