1st grade students used the leaves made by Grade 2 students for their Great Kapok Tree lesson to make Eric Carle inspired collages.
The 4th grade students are making pieces inspired by essays they are writing for their homeroom classes. They are also allowed to choose the medium to work in. Some of the choices are using acrylic paint and pointillism, collage in the style of Eric Carle, and Oil pastel in the style of Jonathan Green and Van Gogh.
Dear Parents and Students,
This year we will be covering many exciting techniques and processes in art. Each grade level will cover the following 5 major disciplines of visual arts: painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and fiber arts. Each grade will cover a variety of techniques along with learning a wide range of classic and modern artists and their pertinent eras of art history. Students will also be looking at the elements of art and principals of design, focusing on composition and craftsmanship in their pieces. In May we will have an end of the year art show to celebrate and exhibit the amazing work the students produced throughout the year.
As many of you may know, my husband and I are expecting our first child sometime in the next few weeks and will be in maternity leave at the beginning of the fall semester. During this time Camille Lill will be in the art room as my substitute. Camille has been a kindergarten teacher with SIS for 3 years and holds a BA degree in Fine Arts from Western Washington University. She has a firm grip on the curriculum and is excited to see some familiar faces as well as getting to know some new ones in the art room this year.
I will return sometime in September and look forward to seeing you all then!
