Artist-inspired Art Projects Ready for Our Art Show June 7th

Since February 2018 our students have been spending each week with our art enrichment specialist Ms. Page, learning about famous artists and then doing an art project based on that artist’s work. We have had fun and tried all kinds of media to create each artwork. Our little masterpieces are completed and ready for our end-of-year art show! Here is what we created and will be on display on Thursday, June 7th:

Georges Seurat: Pointillist Warm/Cool Moon Paintings

Henri Matisse: Abstract Paper Cut Collages

Kehinde Wiley: Power Self Portraits

Georgia O’Keeffe: Skyscapes with Floating Natural Objects

Pablo Picasso: Cubist Self Portraits- Can you guess which is who?

Faith Ringgold: Patterned Quilt Squares

Takashi Murakami: Superflat Flower Sculptures with watercolor carp streamers
