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?
Painting Chinese New Year watercolor dragons to celebrate the upcoming Year of the Rabbit
Painting winter watercolor resist landscapes
Experimenting with color tints and shades
Finishing up our embellished gourds (displayed in the Gillispie Foyer)
Experimenting with the Adobe Fresco app on our IPads guided by Gillispie Parent Jennifer Bianrosa
Making clay coil pots and styrofoam tessellation prints
All grade levels are learning about the American artist Alma Thomas and making art inspired by her colorful abstract painting.
