Final Projects from Last term

As we return from break lets start the final term of art with some creativity and bright color. The students in the last term finished up some beautiful pieces including 8th grade teapots that had to both function (perhaps not easily) and showcase creative spirit. They ranged from fruits and veg to animals to movie themes. And they all hold water and pour tea!

Meanwhile, 7th graders were completing paintings of animals inspired by the work of Maine artist and children’s book illustrator Dahlov Ipcar. Ms. Ipcar passed away while the students were immersed in this lesson but I think she would be impressed by their use of warm and cool colors as well as how they expressed the abstract style of the artist. Dahlov Ipcar was a Maine institution and inspiration and will be truly missed.
