Canyon Middle School pep squad adds enthusiasm to school events
A class of Rahe Primary School second grade students was given the opportunity to develop their creative skills by using the “mind’s eye,** while learning various aspects about design.
Sabrina Adam, Rahe Primary gifted and talented leacher, wrote a series of classroom lessons designed to teach students about design.
“Students were challenged to develop a knowledge of design elements, learn to recognize those elements in an art project, and to develop an appreciation for both artistic expression and craftsmanship in art,** Adam said.
Betty Adams, an artist from San Antonio, was invited to provide students with insight from a professional with years of experience.
She brought several of her day sculptures to show students how angles and curves could be used in the design process, then gave each student a piece of clay.
“I want you to keep your eyes closed and use your mind to create a sculpture out of the clay,” Adams told the students.

Rahe Primary School second grade students Erica Ingram (L) and Beth Niles (R) let their imagination and creativity form a day sculpture under the guidance of San Antonio artist Betty Adams. Adams visited the class to talc about designing and creating art objects.
Student learning included tan- lary words that went with the les-
guage arts skills, as well as art and design, according lo the Rahe Primary School teacher.
“Students were taught vocabu-
sons and wrote questions for the visiting artist, interviewing her after their creative experience with the clay," Adam said.
