Grade 5/6 Students created Virtue of the Week posters as a way to celebrate the different altruistic goals each week at Field.
To kick off the school year and begin with an open ended assignment in which the students could demonstrate their drawing interests and skills in using different drawing media. We started with Arttist Trading Cards. ATC's are a new way for Artists to network with other artists and create small trading card size artworks which they trade at meet-ups or through trading by selecting artworks on the internet which are then mailed back and forth as a trade. The small size of these miniature artworks meant that they can be created relatively quickly and then traded as a novel way to build a community of artists and as a way to build an appreciation of the work of their peers. The students enjoyed the social aspect of interacting with their peers and negotiating trading their cards with other student-artists.
