Lots of New Work before April Break

With only a few days left until April vacation, several classes are wrapping up projects in the art studio.   5th grade has completed a multi-stage unit on landscapes including a pastel drawing showing the “illusion of depth” on a flat service as well as a three dimensional ceramic sculpture capturing a piece of our world in miniature.

6th graders put aside their fear of a self-portrait by embracing the abstract style of Cubism with a Picasso-inspired self-portrait. These works included a 3D element with the cut and stacked pieces of cardboard, as well as a 2D element with the color and pattern painting on the individual parts. Can you recognize these students?

7th grade explored the complex and detailed design motifs of the people of Polynesia and the Maori (Native people of New Zealand). They carved and then glazed their personal designs onto clay faces, simulating the facial tattoos of these Pacific tribal cultures.
