Art Inspires All

Posted: October 30, 2020

This year we are endeavouring to mix old with the new and create amazing art!  In Grade 6 you will be learning the basics of drawing and we may dabble in watercolour painting. In Grade 7 you will explore 3D drawing and Acrylic painting. Finally, in Grade 8 you will be exploring Art HIstory by actually creating pieces in those styles!  I hope that you enjoy your learning and doing.  Draw a bit every day and your skills will improve because--Practice makes better!  

P- Peer collaboration I- Improvement  R- Responsibility  A- Active learning  T- Twenty first century skills  E- Empowerment

This is a very interesting and beautiful art challenge using black paper and a white only medium-chalk, liquid paper, pencil crayon or paint.  The dragon in a cave drawing is done with liquid paper!! Check out the attachment to see the assignment. ;-)
