The Boston Teachers Union School worked in collaboration with Tufts University in affiliation with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts to create an amazing collection of artworks linking literacy, technology and the arts. As part of this arts integration project, our 3rd grade scholars worked on very inspiring personal narratives with Mr. Timberlake. From those personal narrative works, our young artists followed a carefully crafted process, guided by Patty, Mr. Timberlake, Ms. Pearl, Ms. Elana, Ms. Allen and Mrs. Davila, to create a collection of paintings and computer generated stop motion animation movie clips. WOW! This is only the beginning. After completing our first collection of personal narratives, paintings and animations, we had a fabulous publishing party and art show. The party took place on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at the Boston Teachers Union School. Many parents celebrated their scholars’ work and were gracious to pose for pictures. Enjoy the slideshow below.
Thank you Patty, Pearl and Elana, for making this possible for our Union School scholars. Big thanks to Ms. Melissa Allen for her amazing support in all art room endeavors. Enjoy the slideshow!
