Research and art bring many Michigan lighthouses to Blesch Intermediate School.
Blesch’s 6th grade students are completing a semester-long project as they prepare to leave Blesch this June and head over to Menominee Junior/Senior High School. Art teacher Marne Watson and computer teacher Michelle Relyin asked their sixth grade students to research and complete a profile on one of the many Michigan lighthouses currently in existence. As a representation of the lighthouse, they were then asked to paint a ceiling tile with an image of that lighthouse. This has been a great opportunity for students to become a little more familiar with some of the attractions Michigan has to offer and it combined technology, research, writing and art all into one incredible outcome. What an incredible gallery of art work they have created. This project has allowed Blesch’s 6th grade students the opportunity to showcase all of their artistic ability and all of the skills they have developed as they have progressed through MAPS’ elementary art program. Congratulations to each of these students and their teachers!
