A big thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate student work and support our Empty Bowls project at our annual art show. Participants enjoyed a humble bowl of soup and took away a piece of the ceramic bowl installation made by students to raise awareness and funds for the UN World Food Programme. If you missed the opening, the show will continue to be exhibited to the public until June 2nd and bowls are still available with donation.
The weather is warming! What better way to kick off our unit on Places and Spaces than to take our sketchbooks outside and practice some observational drawing. We used our viewfinders to help create and interesting composition and check our proportions carefully.
Check out all the exciting projects we'll get up to in our final quarter for this year!
Another unit of inquiry is upon us! Check out our newsletter about all the exciting things we're up to and how parents can help.
Grade 5 had a fun afternoon outside with their sketchbooks completing their "nature studies." Students are learning to study objects with an aritst's eye, that is, to draw the lines, shapes and spatial relationships they actually see instead of what they think they see.
Grade 5 has finished presenting the top 4 gesture drawings of their classmates by creating a composition using a strong black outline and colorful pastels. Students were tasked with striking the essential gesture of the pose using simple shapes in timed drawing sessions with their classmates. Grade 5 loved being models for a day.
