Collage Materials Needed

For our collage work in the art room we could really use some recycled baby food jars with lids.  They will be used to hold our glue.  Also, all types interesting papers are welcome.  When you think “That’s too good to throw away!” send it in for our art.  Not reams of paper, please, just your neat finds, that when pulled together with other people’s neat finds really makes for great materials.  Thank you, Ms. Maude

Our Fairmount Park art room is coming together nicely.  Art classes have begun in earnest.  BIG things like ceramic kilns, and small things like sewing needles are in the hands of FP artists. To compliment the curriculum we will be heading to the art museum for a blockbuster show: POP DEPARTURES.  The exhibition brings together key works by central figures who defined American Pop art in the 1960s: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, John Chamberlain, and others.  These artists explores issues of celebrity, consumerism, and media. Students will learn about these groundbreaking artists using inquiry, critical thinking, and creativity to connect the exhibition to their own learning.  Back at school, we will adapt the POP themes in our year’s art production.

Do say HELLO

I enjoy meeting all the families who have stopped in to say, “Hello.”  If you have not yet, please feel welcome to step into the art room, just off the courtyard.  It is a wonderful studio for us all to enjoy.
