What are we working on??

K/1/2/3 are exploring the use of foam stamps, rubber stamps, and stamping with other objects in our Printmaking Unit. These skills will be practiced and then applied to a Matisse-inspired still life.

4/5 are having fun drawing wooden art mannequins. These mannequins are posable, and are being placed in student-created still lifes in preparation for observational drawing.
