January in the Star Academy art room

January is such a fun month for Art!  Students are back from a long winter break and are eager to get back in the swing of things, particularly, creating art!  We are starting the month off by turning the Star Academy hallways into a winter wonderland.  Students from all grade levels are learning various art principles and techniques such as:

foreground, middle ground, background
positive and negative space
chalk blending techniques
watercolor tape resist
watercolor salt effect

Here are a few examples of the masterpieces going up in the hallways of Star Academy:

We will continue the month of January by participating in a community service art project and will create a collaborative Kindness Quilt during the great Kindness Challenge week at the end of the month.  Stay tuned for details and pictures of these two exciting events coming soon!
