If any parent would like to volunteer to be a helper in the art room with mounting art work, or hanging artwork around the building or in the community, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org., or send a note to school.
Please be sure to check my blog to see the latest happenings in the art room.
Please begin to start saving recycled supplies for the art room which we will be using for our paper mache' sculptures. I will start collecting right after the holidays. If you have something unique that you regularly buy, that you think we could use in the art room, please send me an email. email@example.com Space is limited for storage, so it would be best to check first if you have a lot to send in. Be sure to make sure all recycled supplies are washed out before sending to school.
Introducing famous artist to children is a great way to appreciate art. Many children have never been to an art museum before, so this is just one way at the elementary level to learn about artists. A favorite artist that children like to learn about is Vincent Van Gogh. We spent some time looking at different landscapes and the styles that they are painted. Students had an opportunity to create their own Starry Night pictures using the same techniques Vincent Van Gogh used. Delaney Arronson from Burr School, did an amazing job on her example. I hope you enjoy the results! ~Mr. Granucci
I'm so pleased to share with you some wonderful examples of our fourth grade still life fruit bowls. Students have been working on how artists use the element of art "value" and what it should look like within their own works of art. Value refers to light and dark intensity of a color to help objects show three dimension. I think you will agree that our students always put great effort into their art projects. ~Mr. G.
