For Week Six, students at the Hill Center campus participated in Ms. Donna’s class, Color Your World, and two classes with Ms. Kelly, Collage Creations and Cartooning. Color Your World students explored the history of color as expression and then expressed themselves in two- and three-dimensional forms using watercolor paper, yarn, and acrylic paints. Using photographs, text, paper, and paint, our Collage Creation student created dynamic works of art. Students in Cartooning learned how to transform their doodles into creative narratives in their own comic books. Check out the amazing work of our Hill Center students below in our Hill Center Virtual Showcase.

Art is messy sometimes.

At our Georgetown campus, the classes included Aquatic Art and Eco Art with Ms. Ashley and Clay Castles and Hidden Gems with Ms. Jacqui. In Aquatic Art students studied the wonderful organic forms of ocean fish, coral, and seashells and used colored pencil and watercolors to create their own beautiful, underwater works while Eco Art students explored the many materials and methods for expressing their creativity and revealing environmental splendor with their work. Ms. Jacqui’s students explored medieval storytelling and created their own narratives and magical beings to create imaginative, descriptive works using painting, drawing, and mixed-media as well as building their own fortresses. Using found objects, Hidden Gem students gathered inspiration from nature to express their own creativity. You can see all of the work from our Georgetown students below in the Georgetown Virtual Showcase.
