The 5th grade classes practiced using tints, tones and shades of red to experiment with the potential of acrylic paints on vinyl circles to be included on the 2012 Lakeview Art Banner.
Circles were selected for inclusion on the banner and affixed with an adhesive to the standard vinyl banner that the students had already painted cream and trimmed with a black paint border.
The final step was to seal the circles with an acrylic varnish.
Our title, “Art in the Round” was added as the finishing touch. Each student in both 5th grade classes had opportunity to contribute to the success of this year’s banner. Nice work!
Many of the elementary schools in Lincoln Public Schools participated in the annual traveling display of banners that can be seen around Lincoln for the next year in such places as the Childrens Museum. If you have a chance, check them out!
The following gallery includes more detail pictures of student work as well as some of the group work done on this project. It was a delight to work with this group of students.
Thank you 5th grade for a job well done!
