ourth graders just finished up an embroidery project. First they created fonts inspired by the artist Jessica Hische and her blog Daily Drop Cap (that fancy letter F you see is courtesy of Daily Drop Cap as well). They selected their favorite and transferred it to fabric and began embroidery. I was so impressed with their enthusiasm for the craft. Images of their sketches coming soon!
2-4 grade Sculpture Club created amazing (if I do say so myself) found object robots. We were having trouble keeping objects attached with glue. And we wanted to be able to see the objects we chose at the end, so we ended up using awesome colored duct tape. I was especially excited to find a chrome duct tape. Perfect for robots of course!
Foam prints by 2nd grade inspired by dental hygiene.
1st graders created paper sculptures. After exploring the many ways to make paper pop up, students discovered they could also bend their whole sculpture to turn their relief sculpture into a free standing sculpture! Some students kept their 3D elements on the outside while other students chose to hide them on the inside. Don’t you just love peeking inside the inside out ones?
1st graders experimented on new surfaces. One class created plant drawings on black paper, while the other class created theirs on newspaper.
4th grade artists used circular objects to create interesting compositions. Color was added using oil pastel and pastels.
Sculptures inspired by the work of Louise Nevelson created by K-2 Sculpture Club.
Our 2nd Graders recently collaborated with Pratt graduate art education student Tina Stevens. After exploring specific works by artists Shervone Neckles and Brynna Tucker, the students then created their own 3D grid structures. Images, words, and colors were chosen by each student to represent a memory and were decoupaged to their sculptures. Their works, along with the works of Neckles and Tucker were then displayed in the exhibit Convergence: Seeing, Interpreting, Creating, Reflecting.
3D animal collages by 1st Grade. First each student created a habitat. Then they created an animal that lived in that type of habitat and had to create a 3D skin texture.
1st grade drawings inspired by the artwork of Paul Klee. Students traced geometric shapes to create cities and buildings and then added color using oil pastels or pastels.

Kindergartener’s were inspired to create these collages after reading Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Catepillar”. Each student artist created their own patterned papers just like Mr. Carle to use to cut out shapes to create their animals.
