Trees from Russia

The fifth graders created cardboard trees that were inspired by a Russian art movement called Constructivism. Mr Muenier taught the students different approaches to attaching pieces as they built their trees. They turned the hallway into a beautiful exhibit.

Ava and Kaylee are two aspiring artists who are happy to share their work.

Great job, Kaylee!

Wow, Ava!


The third graders took a look at the onion dome architecture of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Russia. They had to work in a group to design an inspired Onion Dome Tower. 

After the first graders printed their snowflakes and mounted their prints on colored and white paper, they added rowan berries, strawberries, and more snowflakes as a decorative border. The subjects they used are ones that are found in Russia.

Then it was,"Roll a lot of tape, put it on the back of your art work, and out in the hall we go!"


Before the 5th graders build cardboard trees for the Russian Hallway Exhibit, they are familiarizing themselves with working with cardboard. They have to build their name in a way that is inspired by an art style which originated in Russia; Constructivism. This art movement gave the Russian artist the chance to express themselves independent of particular dictates of the government.

Mr. Meunier teaches the fourth graders how to roll slabs as they begin work on their ceramic matryoshka.


 Before the fifth graders build the trees of Russia for the hallway exhibit, they are learning how to use cardboard as a building material.



The second graders are getting ready to learn how to use their brush to do Russian folk art.
