Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Our SECOND Class together on Thursday, September 13th, proved to be another great art lesson with fun, hands-on activities that the kiddies enjoyed! They created their very own "Fall Leaf Suncatchers," using contact paper and tissue paper (seen below). They had a LOT of fun ripping, tearing, and adhering their own shapes and sizes of "warm color" tissue paper onto sticky, fun contact paper. We first studied the color wheel, focusing on warm and cool color families. We critiqued two more paintings by "the masters," and even created our own "scratch-off" designs on a fall leaf activity! It was loads of discussions of autumn, lots of hands-on activities, and a ton of fun! You can see just how creative and original our young artists are by viewing their beautiful warm color fall leaf suncatchers below. They'll be available to take home for hanging in a window after our first 2018 Semi-Annual Student Art Exhibit in December.

4th - 8th Grade
"The Sun & The Moon"
Our SECOND Class together on Thursday, September 13th, proved to be another exciting adventure with a great group of talented, young, artistic masters! The students were first introduced to the Seven Basic Elements of Art during our first month, with the first of LINE. This month, we studied the second element, COLOR. We studied the color wheel, various color wheel styles, color families on the color wheel, and warm and cool color families. After we critiqued four paintings by "the masters," the students created secondary colors firsthand using primary color play-doh! Then students created masterpiece #2 using warm and cool colors to create "The Sun & The Moon" drawings. FANTABULOUS! Each and every drawing is so beautifully wonderful and unique, it almost brings tears of joy to my soul! See for yourself, and be moved and inspired by our children! (All art is solely the beautiful expression of the artist him/herself. Artist's names will be revealed at the 2018 Semi-Annual Student Art Exhibit in December.)
