5th & 6th GRADE HISTORY
AND ART PROJECT
During the 2nd 9 weeks, art students in the 5th and 6th grades created clay projects relating to Logan County landmarks. Mr. Todd McCormick, Director of the Logan County History Center, visited the art classes and taught students about important Logan County landmarks. Mr. McCormick shared photographs and interesting facts concerning the landmarks (some of which no longer exist in Logan County).
Following the history lesson, students chose a landmark to feature in their artwork. The special place, building, or object was created from clay. The ceramic pieces were glazed and fired in the kiln. In addition, students created backgrounds using watercolor paint over special watercolor boards. The results were incredible and are currently on display in the middle school media center.
The students’ artwork will soon be featured at the Logan County History Center, with an open house on Sunday, April 30 from 1:00-4:00. We hope you can either visit the middle school to see our current display, or visit the Logan County History Center during the future exhibit. You are sure to be amazed at the students’ wonderful depictions of these very important places.
