Art is what you make others see!

Exciting things are happening in the art department at West School! Currently, third grade students are completing a Keith Haring-inspired painting. Students reviewed their knowledge of verbs by creating bright figures, illustrating various verbs in the style of Keith Haring. Be sure to check out West School’s Artsonia page; these third grade artworks are being uploaded as they are completed! Fourth graders are learning about 1-point perspective, using the technique to create a mixed media artwork that taps into and supplements their learning from Spanish class about El Dias de los Muertos! The students are making beautiful and meaningful mixed media pieces that honor an individual that they admire that is no longer living, creating an ofrenda.
