Art Projects

Hispanic Heritage Month Project

Our project was published in the Clinton City School weekly memo and we are very proud of the work we did for this project. Below is the article.

Shout to Mrs. Mallory Strickland and Mrs. Luz Ortega for celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with their students in Art Class at SAS. Mrs. Strickland is partnering with Luz Ortega for her Hispanic heritage month lesson. Ms. Ortega is going to be teaching about the Panama region to her third and fourth graders, while in art, students will be doing Panama Molas art in art class.

5th graders will be doing mosaic art of different Hispanic flags. They can choose which flag to do for their art. The flag can represent their Heritage/culture or be a country that they would like to visit or are interested in.

Of course we always celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by learning and celebrating artist Frida Kahlo!
