Working together with Hilton students and parent volunteers art projects were auctioned at Family Bingo Night, on Feb. 16th. Thanks to all the artists that contributed their skills and time to create the beautiful pieces that were auctioned to give back to Hilton School. Every student at Hilton contributed to the projects and I am so proud of their hard work and so glad that they were able to experience and learn that artists can and do often use their talents and skills to uplift and give back to their community! Way to go Hilton artists!

3rd graders voted on a theme, then painted tiles that will be used to frame mirrors and a chalkboard. 2nd graders have reclaimed furniture and decorated each with painted images. Each 1st grade student created a square for a class quilt. Kindergarten students gave their thumbprints for class ceramics bowls…..

Kindergarten art students are making a storm of snow fun. First, we folded paper and cut out shapes on the sides-it was amazing when we unfolded the paper-the shapes repeated 4 times to make symmetrical patterns that look like snowflakes. We decorated the white paper with white oil pastels, then painted the snowflakes with shivering COOL colors and guess what? The white decorations magically appeared! Ask any all day Kindergartener what the 3 cool colors are!
Working in groups, we built a snowman…we cooperated to glue our snow balls together, then mixed the cool colors with white paint and discovered that the colors got lighter! Using bubble wrap we printed with our light cool colors all over the snowmen…our hands got so messy we even put some handprints on.
Next week when the paint was dry we worked together to create details for our snow friends.
