We are wrapping up our Q2 art classes with some lessons on color theory (the color wheel) and some projects utilizing what we have learned. These include texture paintings and complementary color constructions (K-2), oil pastel drawings using tints and shades (Grades 3-4), Warm and cool color portraits (Grades 5-6) and Warhol-style celebrity portraits (Grades 7-8).
We will kick off Q3 with poster projects for Black History Month at all grade levels, followed by poster and drawing contests for middle grades, and printmaking in grades K-6.
Thanks to all who attended the Grand Opening of our Jane Averill Student Art Gallery in the Ray annex on December 10, 2015. Our January 2016 show will feature works by our 3rd grade artists. Information on opening reception date and time to come!
