Random Acts of Art! Zenz-tangles

4th grade has been practicing the art of Zentangles for the last several weeks.
We also have been following Aaron Zenz and his family's ArtPrize entry called Rock Around.
The students were so inspired by the idea of spreading Art happiness, that we created our own Zenz-tangle mini masterpieces to spread some Random Acts of Art in our Northview community.

If you find an artwork, you can scan the QR code to take you to our website. We would love it if you posted a comment, picture, or told us where you found it on our classroom blog. We will be waiting to hear if anyone found some of our artwork =)

Dot Day Shrinky-Dinks

All of North Oakview celebrated Dot Day, based on the book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds, during the week of September 15th. This day was to celebrate creativity, can-do attitudes, and give students the opportunity to "make their mark".
Art classes created their own "shrinky-dink" dots that were made into bracelets for students to wear all year.

The kids had a riot watching their artwork shrink in our craft oven, that was generously donated by The Outlet. Thank you!

Monochromatic Self-Portraits

The whole school created monochromatic self-portraits for our first Art class project. They look so beautiful in our Unified Arts hallway. What a colorful start to our 2016-17 school year!
