We are just a week away from the last day of school. May is chock full of activities and end-of-year events. One of them we really like is the Annual Art Show. In art class the kids each learn about a famous artist and then do a type of art modeled after that artist. They save everything until the end of the year and pick several of their pieces to display in the art show.
The kids walk around and show us what they have done and sometimes tell us about the artist they have learned about. Kaitlyn was very excited to show us her version of Waterlilies by Monet.
Here are some other things that she worked on this year:
It’s a sculpture of Y Mountain. Can you spot the Y? I also got to be in her art class on the day they learned about Jackson Pollock and did their own splatter painting. Kaitlyn contributed a lot of that green.
Sam’s class learned a lot about Native Americans so they made totem poles.
Abby wouldn’t pose for any pictures with her artwork so I only got one picture of her. Then I took pictures of her art. She had more than the other kids.
Here is a portrait of her teacher:
Since the art show they have been busy with field trips, presentations, track and field, field day, etc. They have also been practicing for the Dance Festival on the last day of school which is coming right up.
We are going to have a low-key Memorial Day weekend (it’s cool and rainy anyway) and get ready for the last week of school.
