Cubic Music

3rd graders have done quite a few projects with Pablo Picasso, so instead of faces, the used instruments. They were instructed to draw their instruments huge filling up the space of the box. (This is something they still struggle with) Then they traced their lines with a permanent marker then paint with watercolor. 

Here are the results!

Van Gogh’s Bedroom

5th grade’s chosen artist was Van Gogh. They learned about perspective, and it was a geometry heavy lesson. Very challenging for them to get away from their old way of thinking things looked!    We ran out of time, so not many got to add color. But here’s one example.

Art Club visits the Menil

This is Art Club’s second year, and I try to make sure we visit an art musuem every year.  The Menil Collection is a great collection of art from antiquity to modern, and all for free. They don’t allow photography inside, but you can just see the joy on Art Club’s faces! 

Royality Masks from the Ancient Near East

Art Club’s next stop through time was learning about the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia, modern day Iran/Iraq/Saudi Arabia, the cradle of civilization. We examined art work from the Ancient Near East collection at  Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Then with pre-made masks, they got busy!


Art Station Day!

Every once in a while, some of the classes will finish a project ahead of some of the others. When that happens, the completed classes get to have Art Stations! It’s one of their favorite activities. The room is just completely a buzz with creation! Take a look!




Art Rocks Y’all!
