Welcome to the Art Room

The students at Newbury are already busy with a school-wide courtyard improvement project. The students will each be painting an inspirational rock that will be placed in the courtyard in an effort to make that a more enjoyable space. The students at Griebling will also be painting a rock that will be placed in the courtyard. These projects were inspired by the book "Only One You" written by Linda Kranz. The author of the book chose to collect rocks and paint them with many bright colors to create the fish that she used for the illustrations in her book. The students will be using several of the elements and principles of art including color, pattern, line, shape and variety in order to complete this project.

The next areas of study will include the use of clay, learning how to draw a still life using shading and watercolor painting to create a landscape.
