OCES ART NEWS
This is the first edition of the OCES Art webpage, and I hope you will find it informative and enjoyable. I am very grateful to our wonderful Tech Coach, Laura Reimer, for her help in enabling this. I hope to share information about the art program for each grade, as well as special events and requests.
A special thanks to the Working Artists Forum of Easton for their generous $150 donation to our art department!
What We’ve Learned
Kindergarten students learned about the artist Henri Matisse, organic shapes, and cutting and gluing skills, as they created abstract collages.
First grade students learned about Mexican culture, counting in Spanish, duck habitats, and modeling technique with clay, as they created the Mexican Clay Ducks.
Second grade students learned about the folk art of Oaxaca, Mexico, patterns, and modeling technique with Model Magic, as they created Oaxaca Animal Pictures and Mexican Lizard Sculptures.
Third grade students learned about primitive art from Panama and the principle of rhythm, as they created Animal Mola collages.
Fourth grade students learned about Latin American culture, symbolism, and embossing technique, as they created Milagros symbols mounted on fabric. Julianna Wooden created this beautiful milagro with a heart symbol.
