After a brief stint at Waitsfield School and a lovely February break I am now back at Fayston until the end of the school year. Mrs. Morse will now be covering my classes at Waitsfield for the rest of the year.
I returned from maternity leave to find many wonderful lessons completed or in progress.
First and second graders created "Stick-Start Abstract Paintings." They used sticks to print abstract designs in black acrylic, then painted the white space with liquid watercolors.
Third and fourth graders learned about the color wheel and complimentary colors.
They also created Picasso face collages.
Kindergarten artists also learned about Picasso and created Picasso Portraits.

First and second graders created collages inspired by Jerry Uelsmann.
Fifth and sixth graders learned about Austrian artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. They created buildings in Hundertwasser's architectural style.
First and second graders painted green paper in different values and textures, then used these to create tree collages.
Thank you to the wonderful Kindergarten class for such a warm welcome back and a fabulous Dr. Seuss hat!
