Moving Into Another Dimension

It's that time of year when we begin to explore the third dimension.  With the opening of the 3-D paper sculpture center, many students are inspired by making art that "pops out" and can stand on its own.
In keeping with our recent work with cardinals and owls, the 4th grade used their paper sculpture expertise to make 3-D birds!  Very fun.  Please enjoy these pictures of the work in progress and some finished pieces by Mrs. Hutton's Class.

Red Birds

Who doesn't love a red bird in the winter?  In the midst of the gray, monochromatic palette of winter, red birds are a nice splash of color to create contrast in the winter landscape.

The second graders have been working on collages of birch trees with red birds busy collecting food before a big snow.  These pictures were inspired by the illustrations of Lois Ehlert in her book Snowballs.

Please enjoy these creations by our second graders!

Whooooooooo is learning to be an Artist?

It's that time of year when the Kindergartners are beginning to bloom in art class.  We have learned about lines and shapes and the student art portfolios are beginning to be filled with many paintings, drawings and collages.

Please enjoy these torn paper collage pictures that are a result of a unit about owls.  These pictures are from all 3 Kindergarten classes.
