Third graders are working hard right now to make some sweet symbolic tile images that represent Fox to them. They will be installed all the way around the big oak that holds our sand box in its roots.
Students thought hard about what was special about our school to them, and simplified those ideas into symbols and simple drawings that could fit onto a 3 by 4 tile. I am loving the results, and I know once they are installed they will look amazing, what do you think?
To make the tiles, students sat around the tree in the playground and did some preliminary sketches, and then later drew their best ideas onto clay slabs using underglaze.
