Art Department News

Wow!  That went by fast!
Welcome Summer!

I just want to say Thank You for sticking with me during this crazy school year!  Teaching from a cart in the elementary classrooms was a challenge, but we made it though.  Even though our media choices were limited, students still worked hard and made some beautiful, creative artwork.  

Junior High art stuck with the same projects each quarter this year.  This helped with the students who were learning remotely.  We were still able to finish about the same number of projects, even with being remote on Fridays.  Students created an Op Art style design, a self-portrait inspired by Chuck Close, an Illuminated Letter ceramic slab and a design using the Koru symbol as a starting point.  

Beginning Art classes this year worked very hard with a variety of media.  They worked with Sharpie for several drawing projects at the beginning of the year, cardboard to build a tree house, bird house or cuckoo clock and used one of their sketchbook drawings as a starting point for a canvas painting at the end of the year.  Students also created a portfolio slide for the Digital Art Show.  Please take some time to check it out!

Hope everyone has a wonderful summer!  Get lots of sunshine and stay creative!
