Puyallup's Christmas Art Project

December 09, 2019
By Jubal McDaniel

Puyallup's elementary art students were busy last week! From fall landscapes, to Lego mini-figure self-portraits, to the Nativity scene, to Christmas wrapping paper ... they worked on it all!

Last week, we drew with glue and started on our Christmas project. This turned into a great opportunity to talk about the Gospel and connect the story of Christmas to the story of Easter. This week we will continue with phase two of our project and hopefully talk more about the importance of the Christmas season.

After drawing with glue, we had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects. Students who still had landscapes and self-portraits to finish got the opportunity to do so. Those who had completed past projects began working on wrapping paper for their Christmas gift. This is a non-directed project that they get to create all on their own. They are having quite a bit of fun with it. They were extremely productive last week, and we are having a lot of fun creating art together!

Custom Christmas Wrapping Paper

What do you do during Christmas season when you have extra time in art class? You find a paper bag, decorate it and create your own wrapping paper for the gift you're making! This was a non-directed time in art, where the students had the opportunity to draw whatever they wanted, however they wanted. They were encouraged to make their “wrapping paper” Christmas themed though. Their bags look great!

Puyallup Cougar Club Is Thankful

Last Wednesday, the Puyallup Cougar Club worked on creating a Thankful Pie Craft. The kids wrote down a few things that they are thankful for and created a pie that reveals what those things are. The staff enjoyed getting to read a few of the things the kids wrote. How great is it to know that our kids are thankful for so many things?

Frederickson | Turkey Art

November 26, 2019
By Jubal McDaniel

This week’s Frederickson K - 2nd art class got in the mood for Thanksgiving by drawing Turkeys. Art teacher, Ms. De Monnin, led them step by step through drawing their turkey heads and bodies. The students would then cut them loose to create their feathers. For all of her students, this was the first time they had “painted” using these layering techniques with oil pastels. Ms. De Monnin says that art was a bit like a trust fall today. There were times when they were apprehensive about the layering process she was asking them to do, but she would encourage them to try it and trust her. Every student was surprised by their turkey oil pastel drawings when they were done. What would Thanksgiving be without a turkey...They did great and their turkeys are amazing!
