Dryden Students will spend the last week before winter break learning about the science behind snowflakes, view how to make paper snowflakes, and then use the iPads to create digital snowflakes using My Flake in an effort to bring on the snow (at least in our art room). Hint: no mobile devices? Use this web app to make snowflakes. See our video from last year.

Make sure you take a peek at the artwork as I upload and publish it on Artsonia
. You might consider purchasing the image on an art snappable
. There are many designs including backpack tags, bracelets, and necklaces. You can change out the image with new ones all the time. Take a look at how beautiful the snowflake will look in a snappable
. Remember that 20%
of your purchases goes to the art program so we can continue doing innovative and creative projects all school year long!
If we have a few extra minutes at the end of class we might view this video
to learn about the Winter Warlock's and the Heat Miser's role in our changing weather:)
