This morning I had the opportunity to visit William Ziegler Elementary School in the Northeast to see their LTP projects in progress.
Fifth grade students working with cooperative teachers Eileen Rudnick and Nicole Lionetti and Moore student teacher Maggie Stewart are creating Joseph Cornell-inspired shadow boxes filled with collaged images and writing, as well as found and formed objects with personal meaning. Today students began creating clay objects that they will paint during the next few weeks and then place on shelves in their shadow boxes.
Students were making everything from dinosaurs to flowers to airplanes, pots and pans and even creative forms based on their initials! I can’t wait until my next visit when they will be assembling their final works.
