It's summertime and time to draw!

When you go on vacation this year, take along a sketchbook and make a drawing at places you visit.  The drawings will bring back memories of favorite places, animals, and people from summer 2018.
 
Enjoy your summer!

After School Art Class

Beginning January 23, art classes will be offered after school!  In this very first session of classes 5th -8th grade students will come together for an hour to exercise their creativity and to polish up art skills.  Drawing and painting techniques will be our focus.  
Sign-ups have begun and spaces will be filled on a first come first served basis. 20 students maximum.  A sign-up form came home in the Monthly newsletter.  I will post it digitally as soon as possible. 
Art Rocks!

Third Grade Art - Request for “supplies”

Hello Artistic Weavers,

We will be adding to our 3rd grade weavings to make them even more beautiful and interesting. It’s good to have many different choices!

Bring to class on Thursday small items that you can string to your weaving.(CHECK WITH MOM OR DAD FIRST)

Some ideas:

- bits of interesting twigs or other pretty bits of nature that you think you can attach to your weaving. Look around your backyard.

- Stones or silver and gold color parts of old costume jewelry – Each piece needs to have its ring or large hole so it can be attached with yarn to your weaving.  Ask Mom if she has some unmatched earrings or a broken necklace.

- small shells with a hole so they can be attached to your weaving. Maybe a bracelet that is broken.

You may bring extras to share with your classmates, if you like.

Have fun scavenging!

Our first 2 weeks of Art classes have been a great beginning. The projects are under way; the students are really focusing on meanings and expression in their artwork.  
1st grade is using line and shape in their radial designs.  2nd grade heard the story of Henri Rousseau and are making jungle artworks.  3rd grade is painting a heavenly Angel to learn more about watercolor, 4th grade has Matisse on their mind, using scissors to create an inspired artwork, 5th grade is learning to use Gustav Klimt's combination of pattern and realism as well as to make a human figure move in art, 6th grade created cave art to better understand the culture that surrounded ancient people and has moved on to personal symbols. 7th grade has begun a portrait of their favorite saint, learning the proportions of the human face, 8th grade drew eyes of many colors and types to express "seeing through God's eyes". They move on to Pop Art and self-portraits next week. Kindergarten will begin on Monday!
