After a long and dreary “spring” 7th and 5th grade students at FMS have helped usher in the bright weather with some gorgeous work inspired by European artists.
Fifth graders looked at the abstract work of Vassily Kandinsky as the practiced their new watercolor techniques. They had to use organic and geometric shapes and then play with color and line in their art.
Meanwhile, 7th grade students examined the distorted and warped portraits of Amedeo Modigliani. The Italian painter was famous for stretching his figures and giving them empty eyes to create a mask-like effect.
