Creations from the Art Room

Fall 2022

K - 12 Art

This fall the art room has been full of rich creative processes. Students learned and developed their art skills. 4th, 5th and 6th grades had their history classes enriched by art and composer studies in their Inspirational Studies classes. Junior high students focused on the skill of watercolor. High school students studied various techniques and media. It’s exciting to see the progress each student has made.

Kindergarten Art

Kindergarten artists learn the elements of shape: dot, circle, straight line, curved line and angle line. They also explored some of the elements of art as they made a leaf rubbing painting. They learned leaves have line, shape, texture, and color.

1st Grade Art

First grade artists learned about printing as they hand and fingerprinted an ocean scene.
