Lower School students, grades pre-kindergarten through fourth grade, have worked hard on this year’s Auction Art Projects. Get ready to bid!

The third grade has been studying Pacific Northwest Coast designs, looking at the totem poles, and Pacific Northwest Coast art. They have read folktales and legends exploring the relationship First Peoples had with animals. Their auction project is a collection of animal totems drawn by the students. These are paired with words that express the character attributes associated with the animals that students feel are character strengths we observe and admire in our animal friends.

Prompting kids to dream about what they want to be when they grow up helps them think about more than just the present. For the first grade art project, each student was professionally photographed while expressing their own unique personality. They were then asked to think about what they want to be when they grow up. The resulting piece is a framed picture celebrating each student and their collective aspirations.
