Fifth graders at Northwest Elementary recently attended a tea party
hosted by Ms. Carol Elliott, Northwest Elementary art teacher. Elliott
hosts the party each year following the completion of the ”Plate” art
project. For the “Plate” project, students create a piece of fine china
from an ordinary paper plate. The students learn about designs that
would appear on fine china. Students create a watercolor painting of
their design and then paint it onto their plate with acrylic paint.
the tea party, students can sample a wide variety of teas and enjoy
sweets that would be found at a traditional English tea party. Elliott
has been hosting the tea party for several years.
