"I always loved art teachers because they were so bizarre. They were like the homeless people of the faculty -- all disheveled, wearing smocks, covered in paint, always digging through the garbage, looking for bottles and egg cartons and things." -Ted Alexandro

Festive Winter Prints

Third and fourth graders used foam board to create stamps of winter themes.  Some chose to turn their stamps into cards or gift tags.

Winter Watercolor Birds


Kindergarten, First and Second grade artists created beautiful Poinsettia paintings.  We looked at the flowers to observe the shapes of the leaves and petals.  We used acrylic paints.

Line Paintings

First and Second grade artists used black acrylic paint to "collect" all of the different types of lines they could think of.  Then they chose two primary colors to mix to paint the background.
