Sixth grade students are learning to paper mache as they work to create animal masks.
Everyone seems to enjoy the messy process of adding paste to paper and covering a balloon.
Students have been designing an animal mask they wish to create. After their initial design work paper mache is their next step.
The sixth graders have been discovering that creating a mask is a project that keeps you constantly learning new processes.
Everyone is excited about learning this new process and moving forward with their mask project.
Second graders explored our new interactive white board as they created digital landscapes.
Students are learning about the parts of a picture, and they are able to draw with their fingers on our magic drawing board.
Everyone wants to join in as they explore landscapes in our new art room with state of the art technology! Students and teacher are learning together!
One of our beginning projects each year is lettering.
Lettering is a basic drawing skill that builds the skills of each student.
Students explored block and bubble styles of lettering.
Lettering is the act or process of inscribing with or making letters. It is a basic way of learning to communicate visually and an important skill for students to develop.
Students will use their skills in our upcoming fire safety poster contest this year.
Here is the new outdoor art space in the courtyard next to the art room in the elementary section of the new Willard City Schools.
We will be using this fun new space tomorrow as we begin the first day of school in our wonderful new facility.
Tomorrow we begin a new era of education at the Willard City Schools in a brand new facility.
We say good-bye to the art room at Central School this year.
We say good-by to the art room at Richmond School also.
I have taught at Richmond school for twenty years and attended this school from 3rd grade through 6th grade. I bid you a fond farewell you have served our community with honor as you assisted many in their education.
Fare-well to Central School. I have taught at Central for twenty years and attended this school as a student from kindergarten through second grade. Thank-you for your service to our community!
In August 2015 we will move into a new building that will service our preschool through 12th students and community for the next several decades.
We look forward to the new adventure that awaits all of us!
Artmanews is taking a summer break from our blog and will return in September after school and art classes have resumed! Check out our other blogs for more creative opportunities.
Fourth grade students have begun a painting project based on Robert Indiana’s Love images.
Robert Indiana, born Robert Clark (born September 13, 1928), is an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His “LOVE” print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art‘s Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for the widely-distributed 1973 United States Postal Service “LOVE” stamp. His media include paper (silk screen) and Cor-ten steel sculpture.
Students were divided into groups to work cooperatively on this project.
Every group explored new painting techniques for the background of their image.
The groups enjoyed using the liquid watercolor.
Every group mixed their warm colors in a unique manner to create a variety of effects. It will be interesting to see how each group creates their version of Love by Robert Indiana.
