The 7th graders finished their plaster masks.  The students got really inventive with a variety of materials, and had much success.  A few of the masks are below (most of the masks will be on display during the Morse School Art Show at Gallery263 in April…more info to follow).

The 2nd graders in Ms. Riley’s class came for two Open Studio sessions for a project linked with their studies about Japan.  The students made carp kites, symbols of good luck for National Children’s Day in Japan.  One kite is hung for every child in a household.

    Some nice efforts there! Even if the fish kites are somewhat different to the traditional variety in Japan… 🙂
