art show sneak peak...

our first art show at Eakin is February 12th at 6pm. Everyone is welcome, so please come see what your kids have done! I am very proud of their efforts and I'm sure they would love to see you here. :)

We will have art displays at all PTO meetings for the rest of the year. PTO meetings are always the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6pm.

mostly, I just wanted to share the progress on 3rd grade's Chihuly paintings. I am very proud of how all of the grades are doing on these projects and I can't wait for our art show in a couple of weeks. Check out what they've done so far...

This Week in Art...

All classes started their Chihuly based projects this week. So far, I am very happy with their hard work and positive attitudes! You can see the ideas for the projects here.
1st grade started their project by matching shapes and forms.
2nd grade began the first of their value paintings, adding the medium value first.
3rd grade sketched out ideas for the paintings they will start next week. Some students made very beautiful sketches! We also played a game matching Chihuly's paintings to the glass sculptures.
Every 4th grade class is doing a different plastic Chihuly sculpture. I was very proud of how seriously they took their work this week; my 4th graders were a little rambunctious before the holiday break. :/
5th grade practiced with modeling clay for their clay cylinder sculptures next week.
a good start to the year. :)
