Art Recap

The school year has been very busy!  The first of the school year the whole school did either Solar Eclipse T-shirts with fabric paint or a Solar Eclipse Oil Pastel project.  Here are some photos of their work!  In doing this the students learned about what happens in a solar eclipse as well as the Sun’s Corona which is artistically represented in their work:)

Middle School also explored the concepts of positive and negative space with Charcoal drawings and Complimentary Colors with construction paper designs.

Monet’s Water Lilies

In art we talked about Claude Monet and look at some pictures of his scenic paintings.  K-4th grade did their own interpretations of Monet’s Water Lilies using colorful tissue paper.  Here are a few pictures of their beautiful work!
