Here we are, at our final NCIS virtual art gallery. I never would have thought we would be home creating art for the rest of the school year. I also never thought I would be creating an online art gallery for my students. A few good things have come out of this experience for me. I have truly loved receiving each and every email from my students. I love the fact that my students still love art no matter where they are. I also appreciate that my students still want to be apart of the art world. It makes me happy to share my own art with my students. I am glad they can now see what I love to create in art, and they can continue seeing this through my blog. This experience has opened my eyes to not only what my students needed during this difficult time, but how happy they looked with their artwork and how proud they were. Art is an amazing thing!! Thank you students, and I'm so proud! Have a wonderful summer and I will see you in the fall!!
This is week 8 of posting the NCIS student art gallery and I cant believe its been that long! I have received around 30 pieces of art work each week, almost 250 pieces of art sent to me!! What great artists we have at NCIS. This week we focused on themes to draw. 4th graders drew things from the movies, like candy, popcorn, or making their own flip book. 5th graders drew summer fun activities, like a swimmer or a 3-D pool. 6th graders drew cars, like a Lamborghini or convertible car. Enjoy the art below from Newark Charter!
I have such amazing artists at Newark Charter, and I am proud every time I show their art. Each week, I continue to get great artwork from my students, so thank you! This week 4th graders were learning and drawing about castles during the medieval times. 5th graders were learning about Japanese art and making their own Japanese garden. 6th graders were learning about classical art and drawing a Greek god of their choice. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful art, and it makes me so happy to see them each week.
Here is another great week of artwork from my students. I especially love seeing the smiles on their faces while they are holding their art! 4th graders were learning about a famous seascape painting and they created their own seascape drawing. They really did a great on the water and making it look realistic. 5th graders learned about native American weavings and learned how to draw a Native American chief. 6th graders learned about Romantic art and how they like to show drama and emotions in their art. They learned how to draw a rocket ship exploding in the sky. Thanks again wonderful students for your commitment in making art each week!
NCIS is displaying such amazing artwork this week. I continue to get more and more art from my students, which makes me so happy! Thank you again artists! This week 4th graders were learning about American art and the many famous portraits, like Paul Revere and George Washington. Students then created their own self-portraits. 5th graders were also learning about American art, but Native American art and the technique of weaving. They created their own looms out of cardboard and made a weaving out of string or other found materials. 6th graders were learning about Romantic art and how they show drama and emotion in their artwork. They created a dramatic ocean wave this week. Enjoy the beautiful artwork!
