Creative Expression at Morningside Elementary!

Morningside elementary continues to allow creative expression in the classroom!
Students in Mrs. Moore’s third grade class are reading the book “Out of my Mind” where the main character Melody sees color when she hears music. After the Reading FSA, students were allowed to spread out on the floor and colored to the sound of fast and slow music by classical composers. Then the students explored the way different materials resists the crayon.
They spoke about how they felt about the activity and how art sometimes helps get our feelings out especially when we feel stressed.
Then students cut their drawing into strips and made a collage. Students used oil pastels to create the eyes of their animals and then painted the details.
