END OF THE YEAR SCHOOL PROJECT: PAINTING THE SCHOOL WALLS

 
Hi there!
Today we're sharing our end of the school year Art project. We painted our school walls, we made very simple decorations and sixth graders, inspired by Banksy's street art, painted a mural. There are some photos below if you'd like to see.





  

Great job and great memories. It was fun!

15th MAY: FAMILY DAY

Last Sunday, 15th May it was Family Day.
As every year, we made a little something for our families. We worked hard! Below are some photos if you'd like to see.
Third graders worked with play-dough to make a set of coasters fro their families. They made some Miró-inspired ones and some marbled ones.







Fourth graders experimented with paper-maché and created a bowl/tray for their families (to put the keys, some chocolates, ...)



 And last, but not least! Fifth graders made a set of hanging photo frames for their families.

DISCOVERING WOMEN ARTISTS - OUR ART WORKS

Last March, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders discovered different women artists to commemorate Women International Day. Apart from learning about their lives, style, art works... we did our own versions of some of their work. You can see some of it below if you'd like to.

3rd graders' Georgia O Keeffe-inspired flowers and "Ladder to the moon".

4th graders' versions of some of Maruja Mallo paintings.


5th graders' portraits of Frida Kahlo.
 
6th graders' versions of Margaret Keane big-eyed children.
