Winter Fine Arts Night & Snowflake Feast

Thank you for all who joined us for the Winter Fine Arts Night on December 7th and the Snowflake Feast on December 8th.  The students did a fantastic job preparing for both events.  All grade levels have artwork in the show and 5th through 1st grade created decorations for the Snowflake Feast.  Our students are so talented and take pride in seeing their artwork on display.  Stop by and see what your students are creating.

Self-Portraits

The third grade has been learning about Van Gogh’s self-portraits.  They learned about Van Gogh’s thick painting style called impasto.  They learned how to draw realistic self-portraits and add realistic color.  They used oil-pastels “brush strokes” to give their artwork Van Gogh’s impasto texture.

Murals

In February, all K-5 classes participated in painting murals illustrating four content areas: math, science, language arts, and social studies.  The  students were involved at every step, including drawing, painting, and finishing the murals with a clear coat. I am so proud of all the students who worked very hard to help complete the murals. We are so thankful for the support of the Specials team, the PTA, Mr. Caudill, Mrs. Goh and Mrs. Mogge.  They helped make the murals possible.

We look forward to more mural painting experiences!
