Global Art Project- Projects by Jen

We are again participating in a Projects by Jen online project. This time we are participating in a World Art Project. This year's project is collaborative project with 23 other classrooms around the world to create a rendition of Vincent Van Gogh's, Starry Night. Our class is responsible for piece number 10. We spent some time before spring break coloring our pieces so we could send them out to the other participating classes. Our group has classes from pre-kindergarten through 6th grade from places such as: North Carolina, California, and New Jersey and as far away as Canada and Australia. 

Each class will also fill out an "All about Us" sheet that will be sent along with their artwork. As our pieces come in we will be placing them on top of the matching section on our World Art Project board in the hall along with the information that each class sends us. We are excited to get our first piece and hope that it arrives soon.

We will also be skyping with a 1st grade class from Connecticut that is also part of the project but from a different group (There are 10 different groups of 24 participating) to compare our art work to theirs. We will also be discussing facts about our classrooms, local weather, and our cities with each other.

If you've never participated in one of these projects, I highly encourage you to look at the various projects that Jen offers. There are many and they span all grade levels. They are very engaging, cover multiple standards and are a great way to embed technology into your curriculum.
