First Post of 2015 – 2016 School Year

Welcome back!  After a beautiful summer it is time to start making more art. Hopefully many people made some art during the summer, I know I did, but now its time to get it rolling in the FMS art studios.  Since students just started and nothing yet is ready for display, lets start off with an Artist of the Month who was known for her love of children. A love that shines through in many of her impressionist paintings: Mary Cassatt.

Born in America but doing most of her best work in France alongside Edgar Degas, Cassatt was pivotal in increasing the role of women in the arts.  For more info, click here.
