What Does the World Look Like Through Your Eyes?

Working with Mentor Artist Brooke Toczylowski, the Fifth Grade at Bayside Elementary spent three weeks this spring investigating painting and learning to EXPRESS themselves. Students looked at the connections between color, language, and abstraction. In our efforts to create a community of learners, we brought fifth and first grades together at the end of their residencies to share and learn from each other.

This unit was inspired by my amazing teacher colleagues, Ascha Drake and Evan Bissell.  This spring Ascha and I led a teacher Professional Development on encouraging literacy through artmaking.
