Clay Owls

Hello guys! Sorry I haven’t been posting much on here. It’s that time of year when everything is wonderful and crazy all at the same time. We have been working on our clay projects this month. The K-5th graders made their owls last week and are painting them this week. Our older students will be sculpting again this week and won’t be painting theirs until next week. I cannot wait to show you what they did! So make sure to check our Facebook page next week to see their work. Thank you to everyone for a great year so far and we hope all of you get to enjoy the holidays with more wonderful and only a little crazy to keep things interesting.

Tamsin Abbott inspired foxes

This week our students have made their own scratch-boards using oil pastels and acrylic paint. Inspired by Tamsin Abbott, a new favorite artist of Mary’s. The students have made foxes in her awesome illustrative style that we have fallen in love with.

Pumpkins

It's that time of year. Our students are using water colors, soft pastels, and markers to make their own fall pumpkins. This is hands down my favorite time of year. I just wish it was a little cooler!

Fall Birch Trees

This week our students are using palette knives and acrylic paint to make these awesome birch trees. Fall is my favorite time of the year so it's no wonder this project makes me happy and puts me in the mood for flannel shirts, awesome soups, fireplaces and scary movies!

The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai

This week our students are using tempera paint to learn about Katsushika Hokusai. He was a master printmaker and did this work 1832! It has been and will always be one of our favorites.
