STUDENT ART WORK NOW ONLINE THROUGH HARVARD GRADUATE CENTER

Elizabeth White, Art Instructor at Pine Tree High School, has been recognized  through the Harvard Graduate Center for Student Work.  White submitted three student projects which were chosen as part of the CSW collection.  All projects were cross-curricular which is a major requirement for CSW as well as higher order thinking. 

The three projects selected were:

Chair Design Without Adhesives - a project where students build a chair entirely out of cardboard without using adhesives or glue that can support the weight of an adult. 
Aztec Indian Portraits is a series of colored pencil drawings that celebrated the Aztec culture.  Cross curricular includes art and social studies.
Wildlife of the Texas Panhandle is a study of native Texas animals and their habitats in chalk pastel. Cross curricular includes art and biology.

The three projects are now online and can be viewed at http://centerforstudentwork.elschools.org/projects.
