Superintendent's Artist Spotlight



Meredith MacNeil, Grade 5

Superintendent's Spotlight 


MacArthur Elementary School: Art Teacher, Mrs. O. O’Hearn 

The ships have sailed! Grade 5 students at MacArthur Elementary School are researching Explorers and their Sailing Ships!

The objective for this art lesson was to integrate art and social studies. The lesson was aligned with the social studies unit.

Using appropriate art and social studies vocabulary terms, students designed their sailing ship drawings based on a variety of pictures from the 18th Century and presented to the class their personal response as to why and how they came up with their designs and details.

Students used pencil to draw their sailing ship and, outlined their sailing ship with Sharpies, and finally used colored pencils to complete their project.
