Dia de los Muertos

Today the 3rd & 4th graders created calaveras (skulls) designs with the help of Northview Senior visiting artist Megan C. They learned a little about the Mexican celebration and then were able to illustrate and color their own!

4th grade Positive/Negative project

4th grade Artists have been talking about how artists use space in their work. They viewed many examples of optical illusions in which the artist would create space that could be both positive or negative. As the students created their own artwork, they worked to form organic shapes to create their own space illusion. We also found an appreciation for looking at abstract work and finding objects within our organic shapes that began to create stories! What do you see in our artwork?
