Abstract

Designated times for arts activities have been reduced in the public schools, but standards for them remain. Both teachers and students like to do some special art projects to explore creativity and to augment the ideas for writing production. The regular curriculum was in place. However, recently, I was able to work with first-grade students at Rock Creek Elementary School and CWU's former teacher candidate in the Elementary Education Programs who are now full-time teachers in Maple Valley. Stephanie Ailment, Alynne Durkan, and Emilee Castillo documented the art painting workshops with photographs. Classic, professional-looking oil and acrylic painting productions were made with a little guidance and a lot of creativity and inspiration from the students. Everyone was so joyful. Parents were so happy to get such unique quality work as Christmas presents. The works and smiling faces in the photos tell all, but the process will be explained.
