Art at UpCycle

Last week, Immanuel Lutheran School first and third grade students went on field trips to UpCycle in Del Ray for some fun art projects.

On Wednesday, third grade students had the opportunity to turn their study of Greek mythology into art by designing lanterns for Theseus to help him find his way through the labyrinth. Students decorated jars with colorful designs, created beaded handles, and attached their lanterns to sticks so they can be held safely with a candle inside.

First graders made the trip to UpCycle on Thursday for two fall leaf projects. The first was a group project, where students worked together to create a large design made from a variety of colorful fall leaves and paint. Students also had the opportunity to make leaf prints, choosing a fall leaf to paint and then produce prints.
