this is our theme song for the New Year...let the art begin!


End of Year Student Art Show

Once again our art year wraps up with a student show during the May Open House event...

Today I Feel

Graduation Self Portraits

 I took photographs of the students and used a computer drawing program to convert them to high contrast image. The portrait image was transferred (photo copied) to a clear overhead transparency. The students created a collage on white base paper under the overhead picture. To complete the project the artists added a personal phrase about themselves and mounted the portraits on a 12x18 sheet of heavy construction paper. The student portraits were placed around the multi purpose room for the 6th grade promotion ceremony and given to the families at the end of the program.

Wacky Watercolors

Pretty Pastel Flowers

What if you were an ant...looking at a flower in a lovely spring garden, you would be little and the flower would be very very big.

 That is the jumping off point for this colorful and imaginative project. Inspired by nature and the artist Georgia O'Keeffe we composed a flower picture that was toooo big for the paper. Drawing a large flower center off center on the paper the artists used chalk pastels to sketch, color and blend.
