The artwork of our Primary and Lower School students is currently on display in the Walker Gallery.
The Primary School art curriculum focuses on exposure to and understanding of the Elements of Design. Our youngest students learn about shape, line, color, texture, and value and begin to identify examples of each in famous works of art. Each piece of art work in our current exhibit reflects one or more of the Elements of Design.
All Lower School pieces were created to celebrate our visiting authors and illustrators during the Lower School Book Festival, held August 31st. Inspired by Mac Barnett’s book Square, and Triangle, first graders created a scene with the characters square, triangle, and circle. First and second graders created 3D pieces by folding pages of a book. Both grades learned a folding technique and then were able to create their own fold. The flying books were created by third grade and each class drew a different background. Fourth grade students created “zeewong” sculptures set in their favorite reading spaces. The “zeewong” is made of aluminum foil and they chose from a buffet of items to create the space. The fifth grade created the collaborative painting. As a class, the students painted a child reading on canvas, which our visiting authors and illustrators signed during their visit.
Our students' artwork will be on display through November 30th. Stop by our Main Building to check it out!
