NCS Students Create Gourdaments!

This year we revisited a school wide project by having every student at NCS create their very own gourdament. Many of these gourds were from a local farmer (The Gourd Guy) that the 4/5 students visited as part of their Outdoor Learning trip, others were from a farm in Arizona Mr. Lohr uses, and a few were even from our very own NCS garden that NCS students planted last year. It was a full circle activity, from seed, to plant, to harvesting, to combing art and nature. Students designed and created the gourdaments in Art class with Ms. Fifer, and Mr. Lohr finished them off with hooks and a protective finish.
