ART All students are finishing up a Totem Pole project. We all looked at some examples of real totem poles which are actually carved into trees or big poles and then painted. Each student chose an animal and created a paper image, trying to copy the style of the Indian carvings. Our totem pole projects are on display near the gym!!
