Art in April



á
In April, students are busy getting ready
for
áSt. Pius V School's annual Art Fair!
The 2017 Art Fair is Tuesday, May 9th, from 6:00-7:30pm.
Come visit to see all the beautiful artwork hanging in the halls,
and stop at the Lower Church Hall for an ice cream social while you're here!

á á ááIn our weekly art classes... Kindergarten students are reading "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?"á by Bill Martin, Jr.,á and we are creating and illustrating our own versions of this book!á1stágraders are learning about pattern and creating beautiful story quilts inspired by recent artist-of-the-month Faith Ringgold.

2nd Graders are creatingáunique Aztec-style suns with faces and intricate designs. á3rd graders are drawing Caricatures of themselves!á 4th graders areáapplying what they know about perspective to create oil pastel drawings of the ocean with a real sense of depth.á áá

5th graders are experimenting with collage, and are creating artwork made entirelyáfrom cut up papers.á 6th graders are studying Impressionism, and creating their own Impressionist landscape paintings.

Junior High students are learning how to use charcoal to create realistic shading.á 7th graders are using charcoal toádraw self-portraits with dramatic shadows.á 8th graders areáfirst using clay to make sculptures of mythical creatures, and then using charcoal to draw landscapes that portrayáthese fictional creaturesáin their environments. á


Ourá7tháandá8thágraders really enjoyed our field trip
to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts in December,
áwhere we viewed and discussed lots of artwork and artists
that we have learned about in our Art Appreciation classes!
