Congratulations to the artwork featured below for being chosen for this year's Youth in Art Exhibit at the Bonifas Art Center in Escanaba. Elementary students who have art chosen will have a letter sent home with them this week with more information. Click on the images below to enlarge. Artwork will be on display from February 27th - March 26th.
Mrs. Nuttall's 3rd grade class learned about the collage technique of Henri Matisse. Just like Matisse, students used scissors and glue only to create these masterpieces! We practiced "drawing with scissors" rather than laying ideas out with pencil first. Click on the images below to enlarge to see some of the final results.
North Central students once again have artwork on display in the community. High School students recently hung a collection of "Heart Art" at Integra First Credit Union in Powers. Artwork currently on display was created by the Visual Arts class (10th-12th grade), and the Drawing/Painting class (9th grade).
In addition, there is a special collaborative project where the Visual Arts class created backgrounds for hearts made by Mrs. Walters' Early Kindergarten class. Artwork can be seen in the photos below (click to enlarge), but will be on display through February for the community to see.

Congrats goes to the following elementary classes for being winners in my art room behavior challenge for the 2nd Quarter:
Tied for 2nd Place:
Mr. LaBonte's 5th Grade
and Mr. Hellberg's 4th Grade
1st Place: Mrs. Dubord's 2nd Grade
Click on the images at the bottom of this post to enlarge. In our ART HISTORY unit, 4th grade focuses on Wassily Kandinsky and his abstract art. Each student in Mr. Hellberg's class created their own SQUARE with CONCENTRIC circles and they were displayed together as one collaborative piece! Students used kwik stix and neon oil pastels to complete this project. Enjoy!
