Our Gator artists are wrapping up their Original Works pieces this week and working on a variety of new projects.
Kindergarten artists finished their Original Works art by collaging their self-portraits onto the name paintings they worked on last week. They are so cute!
First graders are working on a portrait of the Statue of Liberty inspired by pop artist Peter Max. We took turns wearing her crown!
Second grade students are nearly finished with their patriotic heart designs inspired by Brazilian painter Romero Britto. We’ve been working on developing patterns with shapes and lines.
Third grade artists are working on a painting of a field of poppy flowers in honor of Veteran’s Day. Poppies are symbols of remembrance for soldiers that have died in battle. This week we painted the sky and field. Next week we will add the lovely poppy flowers.
Fourth grade artists are beginning our first clay project of the year! We are partnering with the Henrico Humane Society and making portraits of the dogs available for adoption! A selection of our portraits will go on display at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens for their GardenFest of Lights display! We hope that by sharing our artwork with the public we will raise awareness and interest in the good work that the Henrico Humane Society does to find loving homes for dogs and cats in our community!
Fifth grade students continue to work on their Statue of Liberty paintings. They’re looking awesome! More pictures next week!
