East Campus Student Artists’ Creativity on Full Display
The Hochberg Lower School East Campus Art Room is super busy! The hallways of our school are filled with proof of talented students’ creativity.
Kindergarten classes are having so much fun mixing colors, discovering new shades and tones while they learn about the famous artist Wassily Kandinsky.
First grade is learning about the famous American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The students were very interested in her story and loved to observe flowers in a very close view.
Second grade is learning about the artist Laurel Burch. The students were very inspired by her story and loved her cat’s paintings. They decorated their own cats with lots of patterns in the same way as the Artist used to do.
Third grade learned about the artist Paul Klee and they were focusing on his painting “The Castle and the Sun.” The students learned to work on a grid and build their own castle out of different shapes.
Fourth grade is learning about Pablo Picasso. They were focusing on the cubist period, specifically his portraits.
Fifth grade learned about the Italian artist Amadeo Modigliani and his particular portraits with long necks and almond shaped eyes. They achieved outstanding results using an oil pastel technique
