January was a busy month in the GIS Art Studio. All grades are working with new and familiar materials but in new, unusual ways! The featured artwork on this post includes 4th grade student Jack and his “Jim Dine” inspired heart composition. Students are exploring how to divide their plane (paper) and work with expressive color using oil pastels. 4th grade students have also been working with the similarities and differences between simulated and actual textures and how best to use them in their work.

Fifth grade students did a wonderful job discussing their artworks and the work of others using their art vocabulary. Students chose the criteria in which to use discuss their work and make connections between art skills and the concept or big idea behind their work. Fifth grade students also enjoyed a portion of the Robert Frost poem, “Birches”, and used his descriptive language as inspiration for their landscapes.
