Happy New Year! Back to Teaching Art

Welcome to 2015!

Students in my first class of this year were taught about the 3 Kings Day or Epiphany.  The Epiphany is 12 days after Christmas, Jan. 6th.

I read from Matthew Chapter 2, verses 1-12 to give the students historical and biblical information on the 3 Kings.

Each age group of students created Art with the theme of the 3 Kings.   K-1st made camels from their handprints.handprint 3 kings on camels

 

 

2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders folded and cut paper Kings.  The 3 Kings were supposed to stay connected at the elbows and bottom of their cloaks, but some needed a little tape.  The children decorated the 3 Kings to look majestic.

The 6th, 7th and 8th grade students used oil pastels to draw various perspectives of the 3 Kings. Sixth graders drew up-close faces of the kings.

Each student also heard how other countries around the world celebrate the Epiphany in their country.
