Art

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Spring is upon us in the art studio. We are working on nature-based art lessons, allowing blooming flowers and spring animals to inspire our artwork. Classes have painted their sculptures and will be bringing them home! We can’t wait for you to see their sculptures!

Ms. Savello


Units of Study

Kindergarten/ First Grade: Kindergarten and first grade artists are learning about the parts of a flower. Artists will create a sunflower painting inspired by Vincent Van Gogh.

Second Grade: Second grade artists are working on adding details to their bird sculptures. Artists created the body out of a pinch pot, learning score and slip methods to adhere their clay. Next, students will be painting and adding mixed media details.

Third Grade: Third grade artists are learning about Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflower series. Students will be creating still-life paintings inspired by his masterworks. 

Fifth Grade: Fifth grade artists are continuing their sculpture unit and will be creating relief sculptures of dragon eyes. A relief sculpture is an artwork that projects from and belongs to the wall, or other type of background surface.
