The 6th graders began the new trimester this past week. As an introduction activity, students reflected on who they are as artists and individuals by creating a piece of artwork that reflects their vision of the world. Students outlined their own silhouette and then worked to add imagery and text to symbolize their vision as artists.
The second and third graders have been working to reflect upon what the Lenten season means to Catholics around the world and how they will personally take part in Lent this year. Second grade students used a combination of marker and watercolor paint techniques to depict one thing they will do this Lenten season. Ms. Neme's third grade class collaborated to create a mural about the things we do for ourselves and others during Lent after viewing mural painting by Keith Haring. How will you partake in the Lenten season this year?
"I pray during Lent."
"I help other shovel snow during Lent."

We pray, participate in almsgiving, fast, and work towards loving others.
Over the past two weeks, the 5th graders have been exploring the way we see our world through observational drawing. We have been working to identify the light source, direction, and how shadows and forms change with different views. This week students have been hard at work creating their own drawings with shading. Check out a great youtube video below to learn the basics of these techniques.
The 4th graders have been working very hard to create posters advertising thier favorite book. Students worked using a combination of imagery and text to explore ways art can be found in everyday life and integrated into the language arts.
