Countrywood students in Mrs. Burr’s second grade class had an innovative art experience.  With guidance from Countrywood’s art teacher, Mrs. Davis, children had the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind chair using an assortment of everyday materials.  Using their creativity, they built chairs and benches on a theme of their own choosing.  They learned how to construct a chair and applied their own unique details and designs to the structure.  This hands-on lesson in sculpture, building, and painting involved the youngsters using higher-order thinking skills.  Chairs have long been a venue for artists’ expression…..and now served as an inspiration for our young art students at Countrywood!
