Art News: May 2012
The school year has flown by and we are already in our last month of art projects! Each class has something exciting happening for the last chunk of our year together. K/1 classes are currently working on a project which incorporates a little science mixed with art. We are studying hot air balloons, how they work, how they are designed, and beginning basics of perspective.
2/3 classes are working on an exciting project which asks them to think about their favorite memories. They will each choose one to use as a subject for an illustration they will be creating based on that memory.
4/5 classes are starting a project on Pablo Picasso and his cubist style portraits, which asks students to think about the face in a very interesting way!
Middle School students are finishing up their optical illusion projects in colored pencil, and will be able to fit in one more project before the end of the year. Elective is currently working on their final projects, based off of the style of an artist of their choosing.
We will have a great new collection of work up on our school’s art gallery website, Artsonia, in the coming week. Make sure you get a chance to check out the work that our wonderfully creative students have been doing! www.artsonia.com/HoneyCreekCommunity1
