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.
Our after school drawing club is finished for the first session, but that doesn't mean the drawing has to stop! Students enjoyed exploring different subjects in their own sketchbooks, including hands, portraits, blind contour drawing, outdoor landscape studies and imagination collages. See below for some of the activities we've been up to.
Filming is well underway in the middle school art room. Students have been challenged to connect their film concept to a social issue that personally resonates with them. Students please check our edmodo site for project information, links, rubrics and feedback.
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.
Middle school students are enjoying making flipbooks to understand how to create a sense of movement in hand drawn animations. The flipbooks will be good practice for their key assignment: creating animated films using charcoal and reductive drawing techniques.
