Superintendent's Artist Spotlight
February 8, 2018
This month's Artist Spotlight features work by Eric, a 5th grade student at MacArthur Elementary School. Eric and his classmates closely observed and rendered each feature of their faces using mirrors, pencils, and 4"x4" squares of drawing paper. Students then constructed their faces by collaging the square studies, layering paper to create a contemporary self-portrait. Nice work Eric!

January 7, 2018
Students in Grade 3 at Stanley Elementary School used oil pastels and mirrors, to create self-portraits holding their poses of “The Scream” by Munch. They worked hard to achieve the expression, as well as their skin tone. They then painted an anxiously perceived, “bloody sunset”. Keily's brilliant interpretation speaks volumes for her talent, and her work speaks for us all during this cold weather!
