Grade 5 Art with Ms. Castro-Santos
This is the second year that 5th grade artists have studied the work of artist and filmmaker Tim Burton. Students studied his drawings and watched a trailer from his movie, "Corpse Bride". They identified distinguishing features of his work, such as elongated features, exaggerated eyes and a grayscale palette. 5th grade students then drew their self-portraits in a similar style. It's so fun to look at them and see how they captured their personality! Look for all of them on display as you enter Sheffield school.
