Our Annual school gala is on February 25th and each grade level creates beautiful Art projects for the silent Auction. The art projects are available for purchase at the gala. Â Our 1st graders finished their Art project for the gala and are now working on a social studies/Art projects. We started off by learning about the Chinese and read a beautiful book called Brush of the Gods by Lenore Look. We then practiced using Chinese bamboo paint brushes (just like the artist as a youngster in the book) with black liquid watercolors and then painted a Chinese dragon on colored paper. We moved on to look at Mexican art and learnt about Frida Kahlo we are now working on a drawing of a lizard and will be painting it in bright Mexican folk colors.
