What’s Been Happening in Art Class?

What’s been happening in Art class?Sculpture!

With the influence of Frank Stella Kindergarten and Grade 1 has been creating recycled art sculptures.

Frank Stella (born May 12, 1936) is an American painter and printmaker, significant in the art movements of minimalism and postpainterly abstraction.

What’s been happening in Art class?They used shape, color and line to create their abstract sculptures. Everything they used to create their artwork was recycled. They used scrap paper, empty toilet rolls and even recycled glitter! (We collected all the glitter from previous projects and mixed it together making rainbow glitter).

They learned to turn junk into art and flat ideas into threedimensional sculptures.

What’s been happening in Art class?Grade 3 has also been creating sculptures. They have been working with paper mache to create dragon sculptures to celebrate Chinese New Year. The raw materials for their sculptures also came from recycled items. They gave old newspapers a new lease of life! Grade 3 has really been developing their planning and designing skills this year and this was a great opportunity for them to practice. They made their initial sketches and designs in their sketchbook and then translated this into their sculptures.

What’s been happening in Art class?They learned to use their sketch book to revise their ideas as they sculpted and to problem solve as a group, sharing ideas and collaborating when possible. The sculptures will be on display around the Elementary school after the Chinese New Year break.

Long Nian Kuai Le! Happy Year of The Dragon!
