Because Dryden has maintained an online digital art gallery for over 11 years we can look back at how each artist has grown over time. The fifth graders are completing their self-portrait paintings drawn in a 3/4 pose. All those that were here in kindergarten can compare their results to their kindergarten self-portrait painting. Those that came to Dryden after kindergarten and were here in 2nd grade can compare their work to their winter self-portrait. I uploaded all the completed comparison images to this gallery on artsonia so students can reflect on their growth through their artist statement.
Kindergarten-VS-5th Grade Edit name by Slidely Slideshow
Oh my! Look at this treasure I found in an old blog post called "As Cute as a Kitten Video" where a group of the current 5th graders are singing the kindergarten song as KINDERGARTENERS as they line up at the end of art class. I suppose this is one of the benefits of keeping the same teacher at the same school for years, she also celebrates the growth of her students.
