This month students are focusing on the Catholic Social Teaching, "Caring for God's Creation." Classes are concentrating on projects that concern the earth or an endangered species. Currently middle school is working on monochromatic paintings done in which they are able to focus on values by mixing tints and shades of one color. The paintings were made by first creating a grid drawing of a chosen endangered specie or animal, then slowly painting each value. It is a great way to learn to paint and I am completely amazed at how wonderful they are doing!

 

Last month elementary classes did paintings of Master artwork such as, Monet's Bridge Over Waterlilies, Hokusai's the Great Wave Off of Kanagawa and Van Gogh's Sunflowers. Some of these great paintings will be on display, as well as many others, later this month for the schools Fine Arts Night. Please mark your calendar for Thursday, April 26th. There will be a drama play, poetry, music, art, food trucks and more! This is a free family event, so please don't miss out on all the fun!
