While the Cat's Away...

With 4,5, and 6 of globe=trotting, we are still having fun in Art!

PreK worked very carefully today while glazing their ceramic dinosaur footprints.

K1, Inspired by Picasso's Guitar, made mixed media abstract instruments of their own in collage and drawing.

2-3, in connection with theme, tried their hands at mini basket weaving, which is a great project that manifests a decorative and functional mathematical sculpture!  We had so much fun, I didn't get a photo!

Winter Art

We have had quite an up and down winter with Art!  We've missed one week of art due to a snow storm and another to Parent Teacher conferences!  In January the 4,5,6 have been learning to draw from observation.   They started out the New Year in art with an art challenge!  They had to draw an item they couldn't see - only observing it through touch.  Then, they drew the object while someone else described it to them, and the final step was being able to draw the object while looking at it!

In 23, students have done art inspired by stylistic animals, animal tracks, and learning to draw in perspective.

In K1 students have looked at and discussed prehistoric art, and made their own!  They have also practiced paper weaving and fashion design!

Pre K has made ceramic dinosaur print plates that have been fired and will be glazed in the next art class.  They have also used Circles, Dots and Lines to draw their own winter scenes - these are hanging out in the hall for all to see!
