Get Creative with the Elementary School Atoms

Kindergarten students work on their fine motor skills by creating their own ladybug in art class.

Tuesday, October 12th, 2021We all know the Syracuse Academy of Science elementary school students are super creative and love a good challenge, but wait until you see what they have been working on throughout the month of October in their art classes.

To start us off, let's look at the Kindergarten Atoms. This month, the students have been busy working on projects that are geared towards developing and refining their fine motor skills. These include: coloring, cutting and gluing. Their project was creating their very own ladybug!

The 2nd grade Atoms mixed things up a bit with their 100 color challenge! We all know that Atoms are always up for a good challenge, and this one certainly didn't disappoint. For this challenge, students were tasked with creating 100 different colors using only the following paint colors: Red, Yellow, Blue, Black, and White.

The 4th grade Atoms were busy folding away to create a radial design. For those not familiar with a radial design it is when visual materials are arranged around a central point, taking a roughly circular form. Students practiced their origami skills by folding colored paper to create unique and creative design pieces. 

Keep up the great work Atoms, we are so proud of you! Click here to visit our Facebook page to view more pictures of the Atoms and their impressive artwork.
