Wheels of Color, Hidden Cities, and Painted Birds

Our five year old Primary students are reinforcing their understanding of the color wheel as they practice mixing secondary colors from primary colors, learn the tertiary colors, and employ the mnemonic device, ROY G BIV, to recall the order of the colors of the rainbow.

Lower Elementary classes have begun their study of South America with an exploration of the Ancient Inca Empire. Students are designing their own hidden cities in groups of two and three as they practice creating the illusion of space in their artworks by developing foreground, middle ground, and background using line, shape, color, and scale.

Upper Elementary students are finishing their Antarctic penguin sculptures with paint. They have practiced great determination and patience as they have learned to create armatures and resolve the problem of balancing their three dimensional forms.

Art Club shares their observational drawings.
