Life Imitates Art

March has been quite the busy month with our county-wide school art show at OCAF and Fine Arts Night
complete with a 499 piece student art exhibit. Some of the time, I felt like I was living in a Munch painting and just wanted to...
you know... SCREAM!

With March in our rearview mirror and Spring Break just over the horizon, I can share some of the projects that we've been working on.

We once again had our Artome art show which is our spring art fundraiser. We had great excitement over the show as families came in to see the art works. It was also a great fundraiser and raised lots of money for the art program.Thank you for all your support and PTO for supplying the refreshments.

Hiding in the cover of the art room one lunch period, we tried our needles at yarn bombing. Pieces of forgotten, unfinished and unwanted crocheted and knitted pieces (donated by faculty, staff and students) were sewn to a hall bench.

We learned that yarn bombing is a form of street
 art or graffiti seen in many urban areas since 2005.

 There is more to share on work from our K-3rd Georgia Folk Artists unit and pottery from 2nd and 5th,
but I'll save that for the next post.
