Great Blogging News!

Starting today there’s a new activity at St. Lawrence School called the Lab Rats Club. The students are of different ages and levels but they have one thing in common – they love technology and they want to blog!

We are lucky to have a grade six  Mentor  – known to many as Rocky Online – who will be helping  students with the more technical aspects. His particular expertise is in the use of digital art tools. He is the permanent mentor but other grade six students will also take turns helping as needed.

Autobiographical Masks

imageWhat’s an autobiographical mask?
It’s a mask that reveals – and hides – something about the mask-maker. We designed the front of our masks to show (through symbols and colour) some facet of our character or personality that we reveal to the world. The backs of our masks symbolize our closely-held thought which are hidden or shared with those close to us. Then we created Artist Statements that described the process and the symbols we created.
