Kindergarten made clay medallions!  A medallion is a circular pendant.  We read the story "Hunta's Medallion", and learned how clay is formed and where it is found.  These little artists focused on the element of texture and used a variety of objects to press into their medallion.  Next they painted them with the glaze and they were fired in the kiln.  Our ART SMART words were medallion, circular, natural clay, texture and variety.

About Me

My photo
Michelle "Meche" Farah; I have a BFA in Painting and Illustration and Art History Minor from The Savannah College of Art and Design. Before I discovered a love to teach, I worked in interior design, and film production. My teaching certification is from Jacksonville University. This is my 13th year as a teacher and 4th year at Fort Caroline Middle. I teach Art History and sculpture. I am a professional decorative painting artist and a former board member of NeFAEA- Northeast Florida Art Educators Association. I am an active FAEA- Florida Art Education member and attend state conference every year. I have also attended nationals conference several times. My FAVORITE project is "Recycle-Transformation" which simply means going green and making old items new and appreciated. Our FUTURE is in our hands, I include recycled materials in student projects. In my art program students practice the disciplines of art history, art production, art aesthetics, and art criticism. It is not only important to make and learn about art but how to discuss it and bring value and meaning to it. Thanks for viewing our art blog, we are glad you stopped by!
