3rd Grade Mexican Folk Art
The 3rd graders at East Elementary have been having a lot of fun getting ready for the artist in residence program coming up on October 22nd. We have been learning about Mexican folk art since the beginning of the school year. We have sketched little adobe villages, bean pots, flowers and calendar stones. We have cut beautiful Papel Picado (pierced paper) banners to hang in the halls of the school and we have also been working at creating our own colorful versions of bark painting. Each child has completed several works of art to decorate for the fiesta! We hope you will all come see the school on October 22nd to check out the colorful Mexican art!
