Currently, we are focusing on still-life drawing and European Cubism in our Lower and Upper Elementary art classes. Students are learning about cubist, still-life works by European artists Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, and Georges Braque.
Lower Elementary students will complete the unit by creating collages inspired by Synthetic Cubism and Upper Elementary students will design two dimensional, mixed-media artworks and three dimensional, figurative sculptures inspired by cubist forms and perspectives.
Our five year old Primary students continue their exploration and practice of the elements of art with a focus on actual and visual textures. The children are creating vibrant collages using found visual textures and a variety of collected, actual textures.
