Recently, the students had to dress up as their favorite vocabulary word. This little sweetie caught my eye when she came to art class!
Mrs. McKenzie's class recently completed their recycled sculptures of flying saucers complete with tiny clay aliens. Colorful plastic gems were also used for flashing lights to accent their flying saucers. What an amazing job these talented second graders did on this project! Come see these amazing sculptures the night of the art show May 23.
Mrs. Rich's class recently finished their recycled rocket-ship sculptures made from Pringles Chips containers. They really enjoyed painting their sculptures with metallic paints. The designs they painted are beautiful. These awesome sculptures will be on display at the art show on May 23rd. Hope to see you there!
Notes from the art room
This month, we have been very busy in the art room. Our Kindergarten classes are drawing and painting winter birds using geometric shapes. We have also started to learn about clay and will be creating pinch pots.
In first grade, our students are working on a mixed media picture from outer space using lines and shapes to create patterns.
The second grade students have just completed a mixed media picture of aliens based on the story Aliens Love Underpants, by Clair Freedman & Ben Cort. They had a blast creating and designing new underpants for their aliens using the elements of line, shape and pattern.
Our third grade students have just about completed a mix media drawing project of flying saucers. After drawing a plethora of robots, aliens and space animals, they accented their flying saucers with a cut out symmetrical design using a variety of geometric shapes.
In fourth grade, our students are learning different techniques using clay to create aliens.
Congratulations to Grace Mitchell who is this year’s recipient for the Connecticut Association of Schools’ Celebration of the Arts award. Grace will be receiving her award at the Aqua Turf on February 5th.
