Day of the Dead in Third Grade

All the classes at Grant-White learned a lot during Hispanic Heritage Month.  Each day Ms. Suarez would tell us about a remarkable Hispanic over the intercom and teach us the Spanish word of the day.  In Art Class we integrated these studies and made some beautiful Day of the Dead Art.

Third grade made these cool Calavera prints.  We looked at other relief prints that were Day of the Dead themed.  We drew our sugar skulls and added a ton of pattern and symmetrical designs.  We transferred our drawings onto a foam printing plate, applied ink, and printed!
