8th grade artists will be working in papier mache this week to create their own versions of Oaxacan Alebrijes. They are encouraged to keep their written legends about their fantastical creatures in mind as they bring their creations into being, making aesthetic choices based on the narrative.
Current and potential future university students, parents, elementary and secondary art teachers, art professionals and friends from the university and local communities are encouraged to attend.
Stop by the main information table near Room 252 in the Liberal Arts Building and pick-up an open house program and a map. Please check out the attached flyer for more information. Hope to see you there!
This week marks the last section of PE/Health/Fitness. The students have worked hard in collaborating and creating a new game to teach their peers. Their game is to include at least two components of fitness, a component of strategy, and include the entire class. Furthermore, they are responsible for teaching the class their game, answering any questions, or addressing any issues that may arise. The games this week have been fantastic with lots of movement, noodles, and laughing!
