ART @ ICS
What’s Happening in ART Class!
Teacher: Ms. Stam
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year! We are winding down toward the completion of MP2. Students are encouraged to model good classroom citizenship in the Art room. Art materials are to be enjoyed responsibly by all students.
Kindergarten students are working on their Mondrian inspired collages. First Graders are working on their artwork inspired by the book titled, The Little White Owl by Tracy Corderoy. Second grade students are working on their Shape animals inspired by the work of artist Laurel Burch.
Third - Eighth graders will start work on their self-portraits. Students are currently finishing up the drawing unit (observing and sketching) from a still life.
The ICS Gala is quickly approaching! The middle school students will work on designing the ICS Gala Event decorations.
Clay club starts Wednesday, January 16th and will run until April 3rd. Middle school students are invited to join. There is a fifteen-seat limit. Let's Clay!
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.
