Artists of the Week | Amazing Talents
Congratulations to our new Artists of the Week from Mrs. Arfsten's 8th grade class, Chloe and Morgan. They each used pencil to draw a beautiful giraffe. Special time and attention was given to adding a wide range of gray tones in the shading and shadowing, especially in the giraffe's many spots. Nice work ladies.
Congratulations to our new Kindergarten Artists of the Week from Mrs. Hite's and Mrs. Marzec's class, Garrett and Clement. After learning about Paul Cezanne and his use of colors and shapes, the boys each used oil pastels to create these beautiful illustrations of apples on a plate. Beautiful work gentlemen!
