K-5 Collaboration piece for the Primary Art Exhibition on May 17th

On May 17th we are having an art show. There will be a drop-in reception that evening from 6-8PM. The art show is an event to celebrate all the work the students have done in their art class over the year. It is also to showcase the art curriculum. Each student from Kindergarten through 5th grade will have at least one 2-D art piece in the show along with a mini sculpture that will be apart of a school collaboration piece. Pieces are selected to highlight all the various skills and techniques the students are learning throughout the year.

If you cannot make it to the May 17th reception or would like a second look the show it will also be open for viewing from 8:30 AM-5:00PM on Friday, May 18th, 2018.

5th grade studies Georgia O’keefe and Value

In 5th grade we are looking at the work of artist Georgia O’keefe. She changed the way people compose their work by really getting up close with her subjects. The students chose up close pictures of flowers and had to show the progression from one color to another color on each petal and the progression of light to dark which is called value. We also did exercises to prepare for the painting that helped the students visualize light source and color theory. The students are choosing backgrounds of complementary colors to contrast their piece.
