"Mrs. Grober, thank you so much for celebrating cultures and teaching our children of the different months to recognize diversity. A bonus of having virtual lessons is that I am able to learn arts along side my daughter. I even do my own art project along side her. We enjoy the art sessions!!"

Sea Turtle and Hibiscus Flower
Inspired by Hawaii, this art lesson will show you how to draw a sea turtle step-by-step. We will then add color in a creative way using foil and washable markers. After the sea turtle lesson is a hibiscus flower lesson. The month of May, we celebrate Asian Pacific Islander Heritage month. Sea turtles and hibiscus flowers remind me of Hawaii.
GPS Inspired Earth Drawing
This project is inspired by Gladys Mae West and her work toward developing GPS, Global Positioning System. She is a Mathematician known for using satellite data to map out the Earth's surface. Earlier this month, we imagined what space looks like as an astronaut. How do astronauts know where to land when they come back to Earth? How do you know where you are going when going somewhere new? GPS: Global Positioning System uses satellites to locate your position and helps maps direct you where you need to go. We owe this technology to Gladys Mae West, who is both an African American and a woman. We are still celebrating Women's History Month in March. So lets be inspired by this amazing woman as we create a GPS inspired artwork.
Paint a science experiment
This week’s lesson is inspired by George Washington Carver, who is the first African American scientist to receive a national monument to honor his legacy. He was an agricultural scientist and inventor. Today we will draw a science experiment as we learn more about this inspirational figure.
