Today the Fishhawk Creek Elementary students used their imagination to create unique Google logos based on famous graphic designer Ruth Kedar. Kedar is best known for creating the classic logo used by Google until 2013. The students learned about Kedar and her involvement with the logo then designed their own Google logo modification. The student's pieces were judged based on artistic merit, creativity and theme communication. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place students in each grade who scored the highest in these categories were awarded a prize.
The BASE students at Fishhawk Elementary have decided on their new favorite animal…. chameleons! Students learned that chameleons change colors in order to protect themselves from predators in the wild. The students then designed their own color-changing chameleon kaleidoscope to take home!
By pasting marshmallows onto a paper bowl base students at Fishhawk Creek created igloos similar to ones found in the tundra ecosystem. Temperatures in the tundra ecosystem drop to as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit and igloos are used to block out the cold, dry wind. The marshmallows are used to create a snow and ice effect then students used markers to add color and designs to their projects. The students favored the completed igloos with lots of colors and designs.

Using frosting and fruit roll-ups, students created fun and edible cookie art inspired by Henri Matisse. Before they began, the students read Henri Scissors by Jeanette Winter in order to learn about Matisse. They learned that the artist's most famous pieces were created after illness confined him to a wheelchair. The student's cut fruit roll-ups with scissors into Matisse-like shapes to add to their frosted cookies. The students enjoyed the process of creating their cookie art. But enjoyed eating their art even more.
Today at Fishhawk Creek Elementary, students in the gardening club participated in a lesson on seed germination. Students had the chance to learn about the germination process of many different types of seeds. This included pumpkin, squash, tomato, carnations, and pepper seeds as well as numerous others!
The BASE students at fishhawk elementary created colorful art using their very own hand! To begin their project each of the students traced the outline of their hand to the paper, then with markers and paints the students created their own masterpieces! The students enjoyed crafting something so creatively that they had never thought of doing before.
Today the students at Fishhawk Creek Elementary celebrated the beginning of fall! They traced an outline of their hand acting as the trunk and branches of a tree. Then they used different color paints and markers to create leaves. The students used multiple colors for leaves to create the fall color changing effect. Some of the students decided to use only fall colors on their fall trees while others decided to make their tree a bit more colorful.
To create their Picasso Clay Faces the students learned about the concept behind each of Pablo Picasso's art pieces. The students learned that although a lot of Picasso's pieces made them laugh because of how silly they looked they were actually created by the artist combining multiple points of view of one object into one complete piece. Then, with a better understanding of how Picasso created his own art the students created their very own cubism inspired self-portrait with clay. Each of the students enjoyed thinking of creative ways to make their own self-portraits silly like the artists. After they finished the students were excited to show their art to all of their friends then bringing it home to show their families.
By using paper plates, construction paper, stencils, and markers the students were able to enjoy creating their very own masks. Some of the students decided to take a more creative approach and draw their own design for the mask on paper and cutting it out while others choose to be creative by choosing a mask stencil and coloring it in their own way. After each of the masks was designed and cut out the students attached them to a popsicle stick so that they were able to hold the mask over their face and show it to their friends. After the activity, the students were able to keep their new piece of art and take it home as a reminder of the memories made today!
