We have begun to hit a rhythm with our classes in art this year, although we have yet to have a complete week! The students are eager to learn and create each Monday and Thursday and they are settling wonderfully into the expectations and processes in the art program. We have completed the study of Maria Montessori with the focus in art on the simple circle and the creation of patterns within the circle compositions created. The current focus is on John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed) where we went outside to draw tree using observational skills and on Thursday, created observational drawings of the apples from the 1st-8th grade orchard field trip. The Kindergarten artists then added watercolor paint to their drawings to complete the project. Look for the work hanging up in the hallways, they are very well drawn and charming.
