Art Exchange...

Mrs. Schultz, at Twin Lakes Elementary in Elk River, MN and I decided we wanted to have our students interact and learn with each other at the same time. Twin Lakes 5th grade and my 4th grade learned about neutral colors. We each did a work of art learning incorporating this concept. Then we exchange the work. I sent her my 4th grades work and she sent me her students work.


Twin Lakes project (image 1 above) incorporated some aboriginal design. Rogers Elementary (image 2 above) looked at nature and blending of watercolors. I got the idea from Mrs. Puppe (also in our district)
When the exchange was made (on the last day of class for the year) my students worked on a diagram comparing and contrasting the two works.

I'm excited to be working with a school in Japan next year on a similar project. I am looking for more school to exchange with. If you are interested, leave me your email and I'll write you soon.


  1. I am so glad I found your site. I am impressed with the organizers (and your student's art) you use when teaching your lessons. I would love to see more of them.

  2. DellaRae- Thank you! I really enjoy blogging so you will see more.
