The children at Chans worked busily to prepare for the spookiest night of the year with a number of projects designed to scare away the bad spirits and keep the good ones amongst us.
Fourth grade had the task of turning paper plates into Halloween characters, which ranged from Frankenstein to bats to vampires. All in all, a frightening assortment of faces and figures.
In fifth grade, students were very busy as they not only designed and built haunted houses out of cardboard, but also turned them into dioramas with spooky scenes. Others made Halloween drawings to further add to the atmosphere for the holiday.
Finally, the sixth grade made spectacular cutout foregrounds, one of which starred a killer clown and other sinister characters. Afterwards, they organized a photo shoot using the boards so as to have a keepsake of their spectacular work. While some of the class worked on the boards, the rest made Halloween masks to scare away the bad spirits.
All of this wonderful art is on display our school entrance, greeting all of our students, teachers and visitors in a most spectacular fashion. Now, we are making preparations for the next big art project, Christmas. Amazing artwork is soon to come!

Working with Plasticine involves many techniques, such as kneading, rolling, sticking and mixing different colours of Plasticine. The students first started with one colour to make the background of the book cover and added layers of Plasticine until they completed the foreground.

For the month of October, the fourth and fifth grade students at Chans-Bembrive celebrated Halloween by creating haunted houses (fourth grade) and jack-o-lanterns (fifth grade). To accompany the haunted houses, the fourth grade students transformed themselves into witches, werewolves, skeletons, zombies and monsters by using pictures of themselves and their classmates. Then, with face paint, they became these scary creatures. Finally, the fourth grade students learned the Halloween song that inspired their artwork, "Halloween's Here!" To make jack-o-lanterns, the fifth grade students painted pumpkins or drew scary faces. They also learned Halloween riddles to inspire creative drawings based on the jokes.
Some of the students brought artwork from home, including colourful jack-o-lanterns, spooky drawings and sculptures. The artwork looked great on display!

Students even had an opportunity to work with the ipads. We utilized an application on the ipads that showed them how they could manipulate the parts of the face to change the emotion they express. For example, the corners of the eyes pointing up usually expresses a happier emotion, and the mouth pointing down gives a sad expression. Playing this game on the ipads gave them ideas of how they needed to draw the features of the face in order to express a certain emotion.
Finally, students had to choose an emotion that they wanted to represent in their own portrait. We took pictures of all the students immitating this emotion with their expression, and printed out their pictures for them to use as a guide for drawing their portrait. The results were fantastic! Great work 4th Grade!

The 6th grade students worked in small groups of four or five to create a story based on various traditional Christmas characters from around the world. For example, we have a story about Father Christmas, Rudolph, O Apalpador, Frosty and even a Christmas Witch from Italy! The students wrote the story and did the illustration with plasticine. They worked very hard and the results are fantastic! Great work 6th grade!
