4th Grade Artists are busy creating relief Pop Art prints of cupcakes, based on Wayne Thiebaud's art style.
Third Grade artists are weaving. We are learning four different weaving techniques: tabby weave, Egyptian knot, tapestry shapes and tapestry slits. We will mount these on paper once we get them off of the cardboard looms!

Amphora Black-Figure PotSecond Grade artists are studying the paintings on Ancient Greek pottery, and drawing Greek gods and goddesses as well as Greek patterns on either an amphora pot shape, a hydria pot, or a krater pot. We will be adding color with color pencils. Students are either drawing Black-figure or Red-figure style.

Last but not least, Kinder artists are studying American pop artist Jasper Johns, and creating their own paintings about letters or numbers. Most of these projects will be up in our Artsonia Online Museum when they are completed, so check them out at the following link in a few weeks.
