  Pablo Picasso said “I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it”, this philosophy is shared and encouraged throughout the National Education and the Arts statement as they also believe that schools need to promote students into taking calculated risks and imaginative leaps as to learn how to adapt and change.  Engagement in a thriving arts program helps promote this approach to learning.

Looking forward to another year filled with creativity and imagination!!

Expectations in the art room include the tenants of our Starr Initiative:

Week of January 21st

Grades 1 & 2: The lunar New Year is fast approaching.  We'll be making some Chinese Lanterns in art this week.

Grades 3 & 4: Third grades classes will be working on a Moonlit Snow Person using oil crayons, while others are using cut paper to create whimsical Penguins.  4th graders will be learning the art of Zentange, or decorative pattern making.  Check out zentangle.com to learn the origins of this popular craft.

Grades 5 & 6:We're talking about the the elements and principles of texture, pattern and contrast. Keeping these in mind students are working on polar bears using lots of mark making to create texture and then adding patterns for a sweater.  Our polar bears are whimsical in nature.

Grades 7 & 8: We began our Zentangle swirls this week.  We'll continue embellishing our swirls this week.  Check out zentangle.com to learn about the origins of this popular craft.
