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?
