I hope you can make it to see the show! Remember, Fulton residents get FREE admission the first Saturday of every month!

Drawing a Portrait

Fifth grade will begin drawing their self-portrait for the reduction print project this week.  If you would like some extra practice, watch these short videos by OliArt!  Don't forget this is a self-portrait - look in the mirror to see how your features are shaped and spaced.

Video 1: Basic proportion

Video 2: Draw along with Oli to make your self-portrait

Boys and girls, if you make a self-portrait at home with these videos please bring it in to show me!

Do you recycle?

Mrs. Argentina is looking for your old CDs or DVDs to make into a weaving project!  If you have an old music or data CD or DVD please send it in!  Scratches are fine :)

Here is what the finished weavings will look like:

I found the picture at this blog - http://makeitawonderfullife.blogspot.com/2011/06/more-cd-weaving.html

Also, when you switch out your calendar for the new year, consider sending your old calendar to the Art Studio.  Calendars often have great images of landscapes, animals, and buildings that we can use as reference for drawing and painting!

Thanks for thinking of us!
