Celebrating the 2013 Chinese New Year at the Brooks Elementary School.
This school-wide project involved the students in the art class of Mrs. Keefe. Starting with a simple cardboard box and some materials from the recycle center, the dragons head began to take shape. Next scales were added. Students decorated foam shapes and glued pom-poms around the eyes. The body is made with 15 feet of red fabric, which has hula-hoops attached to add support to the structure. More foam shapes were added for the spikes on it’s back. The finished dragon was a result of a lot of teamwork across all the grades at the Brooks Elementary School. Many classes used the dragon in a school-wide celebration parade!!!
