If you follow this blog, you may recall a post from October 7 about Art students from Ms. Dehning & Ms. Detter’s Kindergarten class and Ms. Overmeyer’s High School 3D Art class partnering in the creative process. After listening to the story, “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak, Kindergartners were paired with High School students. Ms. Suhy (elementary Art teacher) encouraged the Kindergartners to draw and color their own unique “Wild Thing”. She discussed textures and mixing parts of animals in their drawings.

The high school students then took those drawings back to the high school, and, over the course of two weeks, turned the kindergartners’ drawings into 3-dimensional soft sculptures. The “wild things” were delivered back to the kindergartners last month.  Pictured are some examples of the collaborative result of Kindergarten and High School artists in creating “wild things”.
