Imagination and creativity were at work this week during VPK art class. Students watched It's not a Box and made their own It's not a Box drawings. I loved watching their ideas take shape. Here are a few of their finished projects. Can you pick out the TRex? the rocketship? the monkey?
On Monday 3rd & 4th graders painted their clay pots and 5th graders painted their clay looms. They are beautiful! 5th grade will be using their looms for weaving next week. To see more about our clay projects you can click here.
Kindergarten students read the Rainbow Fish story and used oil pastels to color their rainbow fish.
Why is creativity and imagination important to you?
It is important to me because you need creativity and imagination to make art. It's the most important thing! Without creativity and imagination there wouldn't be a lot of things.
Are you creating anything special right now?
No, not at the moment.
To me, art is...
To me art is a way to express your emotions and your inner self and child. It is a way to show your inner potential. It is a way to put your heart into your work.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate KeKe and Keara Bell. These former FBCS students spent their day off from Jensen Beach High School volunteering in the art room and in other elementary classes at FBCS. While their friends were at the beach, the mall, and hanging out with friends, KeKe and Keara passed out clay and art supplies, helped students, and put finished projects on the shelves. At the end of the day when I looked at all the clay pieces created I had to thank God for all their help. They are true servants of Christ and a blessing to our school.
Middle school students practiced blind contour drawing today. Blind contour drawing is an exercise where an artist draws the contour of a subject without looking at their paper. It is hard! Here are a few of our drawings. Can you tell who the subject is in these drawings?
