The Ratner School Art Program

All grade levels have finished the work on the cards and I am so impressed with the work they created. The most difficult part of working on this project was the smaller scale of the paper. Most of you know how we like to work on a large scale in our art program, the students can explore the material more freely and with greater experimentation with the composition. The images for the cards were tiny at 8" x 10"! The students commented on the scale, but then set to work with their usual gusto and focus. We are beginning our ceramic unit in most every class this week, so the focus is shifting to a more sculptural approach in the art room. I am looking forward to working with clay this year. This metal smith is finally getting more comfortable with clay!
