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. 

During 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.
