First graders and high school students work together on art projects

What do you get when first graders and teenagers collaborate on a project? A room full of monsters!

Bridle Ridge Elementary School Art Teacher Emily Pfaff organized the collaboration, which began with her first grade art classes learning about monsters. They also talked about the importance of planning in the artistic process. The first graders then planned and created drawings of monsters.

The monster drawings were sent to the high school, where students of Teachers Ashleigh Easton and Jackie Garcia turned the first grade projects into stuffed animals or sculptures.

The high school students who created the monsters visited Bridle Ridge on May 10 to visit the first graders. They discussed the creative process and traded creations. The students had a chance to talk about art, pose for photos, and draw a picture together.

This project ties in with the District's Strategic Plan in several ways: it provided an opportunity for hands-on learning, it provided an expanded opportunity in the arts, and it promoted the development of soft skills such as communication, collaboration, and creativity.
