Sugar Skulls Workshop

Sugar Skulls Workshop

Fifth grade students are currently learning about El dia de los muertos, Day of the Dead.  We are designing a paper calavera, skull, in class. 

On Friday, October 26 the DIA is hosting a Sugar Skull workshop.  In the workshop you will learn how sugar skulls are used in the Mexican and Mexican American communities to celebrate the Day of the Dead.  In this workshop you will also be able to decorate your own sugar skull.

The Seven Elements of Design

The Seven Elements of Design

Haigh artists are off to a fantastic start this year!  Grades one through five have been working on creating various non-objective designs by utilizing three of the seven elements: LINE, SHAPE, and COLOR.  What are the seven elements of design/art?  Be sure to ask your fourth and fifth graders, they should know all seven.  

Next week photos of these designs will be posted on grade level tabs, so be sure to check them out!!
