4th Grade Fine Arts Show

"How We Became Pirates"

Enjoy an evening of celebrating what your 4th grader has been learning in Art and Music!

Students have been hard at work creating art, learning songs, and rehearsing special parts for their music program! Before the concert, please visit our Fourth Grade Art gallery. The gallery will highlight one piece of art your child has chosen to display. A variety of projects created throughout the school year will be showcased. We invite you to walk around the gallery and talk with your child about the different learning activities and projects they've completed throughout the year.

  • The art gallery is open from 6:30-6:45 and is "open house" style.
  • Works Include:


Colorful Landscapes- Students learned how to read the color wheel and use it to mix primary, secondary and intermediate colors. We also created tints and shades. Students had to create their own unique colors for each part of their landscapes. They were based on the colorful work of Xavier Castellanos.


Art for Social Justice- We learned that art is a powerful way to send messages about current events. Students selected a social justice topic they wanted to learn more about and research. Students designed a piece of art to reflect the event that was taking place and to try to educate people about it. Students self selected the artistic media they wanted to use. We learned about artist Keith Haring who often used his artwork to send messages about important social issues.


  • At 6:45, Students will be invited to their classrooms.

  • The Music Concert will start promptly at 7:00.

  • Following the concert, parents will pick up students in the multipurpose room.

  • For the event, dresses and suits are not required, but a shirt with a collar and pants for boys and a nice shirt for girls are preferable.
  • Due to the pirate theme, students are encouraged to wear something pirate themed if they would like.
  • Please keep in mind that it may get hot on the stage - lightweight clothing is best.

  • Also, performers need to wear shoes that are safe for the risers (no Crocs or Clog type shoes please).


Your children are eager to share what they have been working on this year. We look forward to seeing you there!
