Specialty Spotlight: Art

We are energetically jumping into the new year in the art bungalow and garden.

Here are some of our current art projects:


Painting dinosaur landscapes and planting tulips with Ms. Metcalfe in the art garden

We will watch these tulips grow and use them for art inspiration throughout the grade levels. Did you know tulips were first found in Persia?

First Grade

Third Grade

Experimenting with color tints and shades

Fourth Grade
