Busy Month!

Congratulations again to our 5th grade students who took place in the “Vision of Peace” art contest. All of the finalists went to the state capital on Saturday for a reception.

Gracie Phillips, Allison Justine, Sarah Newby and Emma Thornhill all had their work on display. So very proud of them!


 


We had a wonderful time with all of our SEAS families together at the reception which included all other competing schools.The SEAS art program was also awarded $50 for participating in the contest. Way to go talented Cardinals!


 
This past month students learned about the color wheel. 1st grade made color wheel caterpillars that had primary and secondary colors. 2rd grade painted balloons, 3rd painted umbrellas and 4th grade painted rings. Middle school showed their knowledge of shadows and highlights to make a color wheel with primary, secondary and tertiary colors.


Students also got to practice drawing from a still life! I was so impressed with the great  work everyone made. From 1st grade to 4th, they created really amazing still life drawings. We talked about how important it is to observe what's in front of you and not just draw from memory. Students also got to practice spatial concepts, scale and comparing objects to organize their composition.

 Shout out to the boys basketball team winning state championship! Congratulations guys!
