S: ANTHROPOMORPHIC ART - Class of 2017 March 2011

BC: Created by Sarah Browne 3-15-2011

FC: No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination. ~ Edward Hopper ~

1: The meaning of anthropomorphic is to give human characteristics to non-human things such as animals. With guidance from their art teachers Jan LeHecka and Wendy Gahagan, the second graders brainstormed ideas and then made preliminary sketches of their anthropomorphic creatures. Their creatures were adapted to large scale sheets of recycled cardboard. To add additional texture, glue outlines were applied with much attention to detail. Design became an integral part of each creature. Exploration of color took place as each artist mixed paint using only 3 primary colors and black and white. The large scale expressionist application on raw, recycled cardboard is keeping with the true artistic process. Each of their unique creatures come to life in their creative and imaginative stories.

3: Fishing for Paint Ball Land One day in 2010 while on their boat, Myth Mustard and his friends, Tree Climber and Fruit Freak went out of bed to go fishing. Then Tree Climber got a fish! Tree Climber looked like a big bear with wings and patterned blocks. But when he got that fish he and his friends teleported to Paint Ball Land. They always loved to play paint ball, so they did.

5: The Two Headed Bird Once upon a time there was a two headed bird. He was looking for a job. Then he got in his car. When he got into town he saw his friend waving a sign. The sign said MORE NEW YORK POLICE OFFICERS. He drove over and said "Hi Nick." "Hi," said Nick." "I am looking for a job," said Jack. "Well, you are in the right place," said Nick. Jack signed the paper to sign up. When he was in training he practiced driving. When he was done with training he went off to be New York police officer. When he was a police officer Jack did a lot of things. He pulled over a car. He arrested someone. He went to a car crash too. When he went back to the police station a police officer said to Jack that he was not a professional police officer. In March he became a professional New York police officer, doing things better. His two heads really helped him drive because he could look forward and backward. | I am 8 years old. My favorite subject is P.E. At home, I love to fly airplanes.

7: Campout on the Palm Tree Island One July afternoon, Skyreacher was lying under a wide branched Zoogle tree. It was the middle of the heat wave, and the shade cast by the wide, long branches was very satisfying. Skyreacher has the head and arms of a human and wings, four legs, body, and tail of a dragon. "What a nice day." said Skyreacher. "I think I'll go to the smallest Palm Tree Island." The Palm Tree Islands are a line of islands that look like gigantic palm trees. They have dense palm tree forests, and are fun to explore because no map shows all the whereabouts of them. They are in Imagimyth, where Skyreacher lives. Imagimyth is where made up mythical creatures live. It shares a border with Mythomainia, a place where real mythical creatures live. Since they share a border, creatures from either land can go into the other land. Skyreacher had two Mythomainian friends, Firewing and Goldenwing. Firewing was a phoenix. He looked like an eagle, except in color. Firewing was orange, red, yellow, and tinged with blue. He was amazingly strong, and he could not die. Whenever he died, he burst into flames and was reborn from the ashes. His tears could heal any wound. Goldenwing was a griffin, and he had the head, front legs, and wings of a bald eagle, the back, tail, and back legs of a lion. Skyreacher went to get them. They packed their bags, and flew off to the smallest Palm Tree Island. When they got there, it was night, so they set up camp, had dinner, and went to bed. The next morning they decided to go for a swim. But when Firewing got in the water, he was on fire and he sank. He leaped out of the water, flapped over to Skyreacher and cried "I can't swim!" Skyreacher thought and thought and then he said "When you went in, you were in fire mode, so try going in while you are in solid mode." "Okay," said Firewing. "I'll try." So he flew back and got in the water in solid mode, and he could swim! "Hooray!" cried Firewing. "I can swim!" So they swam all morning. | I am 8 years old.

9: The Power of Friends Once in fiction world in the clouds on planet Gom in Feng there lived Fica, the drawing creature. One day Fica got out of bed and went to draw. She was horrified. She found the drawing equipment gone. She said "Jeck, come here, come on boy." "Meech, Meech," said Jeck the griffen. Then he pounced on Fica. "Okay, okay Jeck," laughed Fica. "I need you to help me find my pencil, paper and other things, okay?" "Meech!" screamed Jeck. "Good," said Fica. "Let's go!" So off they went. They went up, and up, and up into the spookiest place, Livonon. "Some people go through those rickety, viny gates and never come out," said Fica. "Ooooooo, Oooooo," came a voice from inside. "Meech!" Jeck said. "It's okay boy, let's go." Then off they went through the rickety gates. Then there it was...Fireball the Phoenix. "Aaaaaah!" Fica said when she flipped." Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha," said Fireball. "I have your drawing things and YOU don't, ha!" "Oh well, you're asking for it!" said Fica. Then she used her ice power bite to freeze him. Just then Fireball turned blue, then said, "Oh please let me go. I was just sad that I couldn't draw." Then he started crying. "Oh," said Fica, then unfreed him. A few days later Fica gave Fireball drawing lessons. Fireball could draw and Fica and Fireball were best friends. | I am 8 years old. My favorite subjects are art, writing, and science.
