ART @ ICS
What’s Happening in ART Class!
Teacher: Ms. Stam
It's almost April! The middle school students did a fantastic job on the Jockey Jersey designs for the 2019 ICS Gala Event decorations. The event titled, "A Night at the Races" was a success and so much fun!
Kindergarten through second Grade is working on a project inspired by the artist Van Gogh. A unique sunflower paper collage inspired by Van Gogh's sunflower still life oil painting.
Third graders completed sewing their love monsters and brought them home to their families as a surprise. Fourth graders are finishing up their self-portraits.
Clay club started Wednesday, January 16th and will run until May 3rd because we missed three club classes due to school closures. Middle school students are invited to join. There is a fifteen-seat limit. Let's Clay!
All students K-8 are participating in the 2019 Doodle for Google contest! The 2019 Doodle for Google theme is: When I grow up, I hope… This year’s theme invites students to show us what they hope for in the future. Classrooms on Mars? Shoes that can fly? Food for everyone? A pill that cures everything? Every student (K-8) received the official Doodle for Google template. The work will be submitted to Google on March 13th.
The prizes are as follows:
The National Winner’s artwork will be displayed on Google.com for one day. He or she will also receive:
ART is Exploration
Students are encouraged to explore all mediums in the classroom.
Students 5th-8th grade are invited to join Clay Club from January 16th – April 3rd. Students will learn how to wedge clay and can make up to three ceramic objects of their choice (pinch pots, bowls, pendants, ornaments or carved tiles). Each student will receive 10lbs of clay. A pottery wheel demonstration will be given by the instructor. Students will have the opportunity to take turns and try the pottery wheel. Throwing pottery requires practice so please be aware that not every throw will result in a successful ceramic work of art.
Please note: Ceramic works of art require proper clay wedging to remove air bubbles. Air bubbles can cause an explosion inside the kiln during firing resulting in damage to the work of art itself and possible damage to other student artwork. The instructor is not responsible for breakage through improper handling, wedging or ceramic glaze defects after firing. Ceramic artwork shrinks by 10% after firing.
