Welcome to The Art Studio!

This fall, K-1 classes are starting with their Original Works project.
Each class will be learning about a particular artist and/or art style. The students will create an original artwork incorporating that style. Their artwork will be sent home to you in a packet that contains information about how you can order products that have your student's artwork reproduced on different items. These make wonderful gifts. Examples are located in the front lobby display case.

Here is the link to the Original Works website just in case you would like to view their product choices.

Original works packets will be in Friday folders for K-6 on Oct 4.

Original Works is a fundraising activity. For every product you order, the company will return part of the profits to Excel Academy. We use this money to buy the many supplies that we use to create art in the Art Studio. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

Here are the artist's and/or styles that we will use for our inspiration this year.

Kindergarten - Artist Paul Klee
1st Grade       - Self portraits
2nd Grade      - Artist Vincent van Gogh
3rd Grade       - Artist Henry Matisse
4/5 Grade       - Landscapes

We usually do not do Original Works with the 6-8 grade students, however, they will be given the opportunity to bring home a packet if they would like to create their own original artwork to be transferred to a project. Please let me know if you would like a packet.

6 grade students have been learning about proportions in art. We have looked at various art time periods and how art changed over the years. The students did a portrait of their friend. They did a fruit bowl still life with shading. They built a gargoyle out of clay. Currently they are leaning about Fibonacci and how math effects art. 

6th grade art class and Drawing class portfolios are due on Oct 14.
