best paint in Artville, it is best to wear your not-best uniform on Art Day!
In second grade, Masterpiece Art presents sculpture from the Weisman Art Museum. The first project is the spectacular Weisman Building, designed by Frank Gehry. Parents have all done a beautiful job of getting the kids excited about architecture, design, and using unconventional materials to make imaginative structures.
What sorts of animals might be living in a rainforest of magic bean plants?
For me, art and story have always gone hand in hand. Many of our students are natural story tellers. We took another precious day in Artville to ask the questions; where did the dragons come from? how did they get to Artville? What might they do when they get here?
Second graders are all interested in this new skill, and all are willing to give it a try. They learn a little about the history of this ancient art, and its important place in the culture of many traditional cultures. Children make creative choices in their selection of yarn colors and in how they want their weaving to be displayed in the upcoming Lower School Art Show (April 21 if you are planning ahead).
