Third, fourth, and fifth grade artist just finished a lesson on folk art. They learned about contemporary folk artist, Heather Galler. Next, they sketched out designs for their own artwork. Finally, they used markers, colored pencils, oil pastels, and watercolor to complete their projects. They did a great job! For more information click here.
Natalie is a fifth grader at FBCS. In addition to drawing and creating, Natalie likes to play with her dog and swim. In this picture she is wearing a fox costume she designed and made. This is what she has to say about art.
What do you love about art? I love creating. You can do anything with art. I like being able to take my ideas and create new and fun things.
Why is art important to you? Art is important to me because it is something that I can do and I am talented at it. I enjoy creating costumes and I think I am good at it.
Are you creating anything special right now? I am creating a dog costume.
Do you have anything additional to add? Don’t think people are weird if they like to wear costumes in public!

To check out more of the projects check out the FBCS Artsonia online art gallery.
This year I had the privilege of creating banners for open house. It was a fun project. Thank you Billy, Aleah, Gabriella, and 7th graders who helped get things set up for Thursday night. I am blessed to be a part of a school that puts Christ at the center of everything.
