Art News from Around the School and Around the World…
And the “Art Star” for the Month of February is... I’m happy to announce that the “Art Star” award for February goes to Michael W. (Rm. 106). Please assist me in congratulating Michael for all the hard work, creativity, and independence that he has shown over the past month.
What’s Going On?! This month in the Art Room students will be creating a series of paintings based on the work of this month’s Featured Artist, Vincent van Gogh. These paintings will introduce a few new painting techniques, including Marker Transfer, and will reinforce past techniques, such as Masking and Tempera Paint Transfer. The paintings by van Gogh below will be the basis for the student’s own art.
