Lights, Camera, Auction!

Here is a sneak peek at some of the student contributions to our school auction. (Not all of the classes are shown). A very special thank you to LeeAnne Ciaramitaro for helping with kindergarten flower plates, and second grade self-portrait platters. A big thank you to Jane Harvey who bisque fired, and glaze fired all of the first grade hearts for the hanging heart mobiles. Thank you Lisa Groleau for helping to decoupage the fourth grade tables, and third grade mirrors. Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Greene (our wonderful music teacher and her talented husband)who built all of the fourth grade tables from wooden pallets. The students are all very excited to learn which lucky families will get to take home their lovely collaborative contributions.

A Day in the Life of the Art Room

It was a busy and challenging week in the art room, so I decided to highlight some of the high points of yesterday. The day started with a fifth grader sharing her progress on her one point perspective drawing. Her classmates are working at their own pace finishing up coil and slab constructions. Meanwhile, back at the Prospect Street campus, heart art and winter portraits are taking shape using tissue painting, printing, and oil resist methods.

Grade 1 and 4 Current work

In March fourth graders explored foreground, middle-ground and background using chalk and paint to describe a winter scene. This winter offered beautiful images to draw from. First graders started a three week study of birds with these bird/ birch tree collages. They have gone on to create bird sculptures and an illustrated bird field guide.

Kindergarten and Grade 2 Current Work

Here is a look at some of the kindergarten and grade two projects going on.
Kindergarten: Circus collage and pepper printing Grade 2: Mondrian, primary colors, and weaving with painted and metallic colors
