Auburn-Washburn Public Schools Foundation

Multi-Grade Art Book Project

Last semester, Washburn Rural Middle School Art teacher Mindy Armstrong coordinated a special Foundation Classroom Grant project. Through the project, 8th grade design students got the opportunity to collaborate with 2nd graders at Jay Shideler Elementary School.

The 2nd grade students created an illustration of a monster, and each of WRMS students received two illustrations. The 8th graders had limited info of the monsters and first wrote a short story about the two monsters, and then they created a work of art that would illustrate the monsters to go with the story.

The Foundation Classroom Grant provided the printing of books of these short stories with illustrations of the 2nd graders’ and the 8th graders’ artwork. The grant provided a book for each 2nd grader, each 8th grader, and a teacher’s copy. There are four books in total, one for each class in 2nd grade at Jay Shideler.

On March 3rd the WRMS students took a field trip to Jay Shideler to meet the 2nd graders and read the book of short stories to them.

Also, it just happened to be Bob Ross Day in honor of Art Month at Jay Shideler on the day the WRMS students visited.
