While the 5th graders begin their Smile Morse project, they recently finished their multicultural unit on Aboriginal art.  Choosing between X-ray animals or Handprint designs, the students placed on emphasis on line and pattern with their drawings.  Clay tiles were rolled out and underglaze painted on.  They used the technique of sgraffito to etch the images into the clay tiles.  These tiles will be on display at Gallery263 in April.

Some finished tiles from Ms. Jeram’s class:
