Grade 2 PYP Now and Then Collaboration

Grade 2 students are studying things changing over time in their homerooms. In art they are creating mobiles representing objects or places, how they used to be and how they are now. Students are also learning about creating and using positive and negative space for composition, texture and pattern.

These are some of their pieces still in-progress.

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.

A New Year in Art

Welcome back! I hope you are as excited as I am to begin another school year. This year we will be focusing on increased collaboration with the homeroom teachers and making sure every student has a place to express themselves in their unique creative voice. Please follow our classroom instagram and/or twitter if you are able to catch more photos of what the students are doing at: and Please remember this year to dress for art. There are procedures in place to minimize mess but still accidents will happen so it is best students wear clothes and shoes that you won’t mind them getting messy. We will also be continuing the tradition of our end of the year art show where each student k-5 will have at least one piece exhibited.
