"I drew the zero like that because it represents the ball drop. I colored the other numbers solid, so you can focus on the zero."
B day is art day for fifth grade. That means bringing in a sketchpad with a drawing of something . . . it could be a realistic interpretation, a cartoon sketch, or even a colorful design. This week we celebrated the New Year and artists drew the numbers 2016 in a fun way.

"2015 is in the past and 2016 is moving in."
We are learning how to give an artist statement to the class. This will give the audience more information about the drawing and get everyone excited about what is being presented. Here are a few examples of our New Year's sketches and the words of the artists describing what they created.
Happy New Year everyone!
