Art Club: Eclipse Artwork



Alma Woodsey Thomas is an African American Artist who created "The Eclipse" after being inspired by the total solar eclipse she experienced on March 7, 1970. This eclipse was visible from across the Eastern United States, including Washington, DC. Her masterpiece is displayed in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C. Junior high and high school students used Alma Woodsey Thomas as inspiration for their very own artwork this week. They created their own versions of "The Eclipse".

Art: Kindergarten & 1st Grade Flowers

2024 Art Spring Flowers

Kindergarten & 1st Grade explored using crayon and paint today during their Art class. With crayon they added water to their cup and drew stems for the flowers. Then, we used yellow and red paint to create pretty flowers. First, they dabbed yellow in the shape of a triangle. Then, they used red to go over the top of the yellow. They noticed in some places the yellow and red mixed together to create orange. It was fun to see all the different ways their art turned out.

Art: 6th Grade Waves

2024 Art Club Waves

6th grade is ready for summer. We talked about how we are ready for some waves. We don't care if they are from the ocean, a lake, river, creek or pool. Bring on the warm sunshine and some water to play and relax in.

This lesson introduced movement in paintings. They learned how to use brush strokes, going along the direction of the wave, to make your eyes follow along when looking at the painting.

FFA: You've Got Mail



Our Ag Business class has been learning about communication and thought it would be fun to send business letters to a few of their favorite businesses. We got our first response! Brandon wrote to Fabick CAT and received a hat, sticker, magnet, and a handwritten note back! Excitement was an understatement when he learned about his package from them. Great job Brandon!

FBLA Valentine's Day



For Valentine's Day the Junior High Keyboarding Class typed anonymous valentines to each person in the class. They had to type at least one nice thing about the person that did not include their appearance. Some students really put a lot of thought into their compliments and everyone's day was brightened :)

Art Club: The Kindergarten & 1st Grade Snowmen

Art Club: Kindergarten & 1st Grade Snowmen

Oh my goodness. The Kindergarten & 1st Grade students truly have my heart! ❤️

We took a project that the older students did a few weeks ago, and did a simpler version of it today.

Hearing their giggles when I told them to imagine what it would be like to be fall down in the snow and look up to find four snowmen looking down at them was so cute. ☺️

I loved seeing their creativity and how their eyes lit up when they learned how to draw hats, scarves and carrot noses.

Maybe they will get a chance to create REAL snowmen in the coming days or weeks!?!☃️

Hopefully, your children brought their artwork home today! Many of them were very excited to show off their snowmen off to their family.
