What makes you want to SCREAM? This month students in Ms. Larsen's and Mrs. Luther's class at Art City Elementary wrote about what makes them want to scream. The students studied "The Scream" by Edvard Munch and used similar colors, lines and movement to create their own watercolor art. With a digital camera the students pictures were taken recreating that famous scream face. Their pictures were printed then cut out and glued onto their watercolor painting. Students then wrote about what makes them scream and published their writing in the school computer lab.

Art City Elementary fifth graders were treated to a fun and informative field trip at the Springville Power Department. They learned electrical saftey while they watched hotdogs, pickles and grapes get zapped.
