Partners share their drawings and ideas. They ask each other questions. They build friendships and learn to be leaders.
Today the First and Fifth graders at Bayside Elementary came together to SHARE and LEARN about each other’s artwork and to work together on their own creation. Both grades have been working with Mentor Artist, Brooke Toczylowski, for the past 6 weeks.
Students brainstormed questions to ask each other:
The classroom was transformed into an art studio, with fifth grade art hanging on temporary walls.
After sharing, the students were posed with the question, WHAT is ART?
They were also asked to create a collaborative drawing, where one person starts with a line, the next transforms it into a shape, and then they take turns making a drawing together.
Students draw together, uniting their creative energies.
