March is probably my absolute favorite time of year in the Art room! It's probably no surprise to those of you who know me, but I have a passion for The Lion King movie. I love the colors and the animals and the artwork that is inspired by Africa. I hope to excite the students about these things as well. We plan to watch a little bit of The Lion King movie during each lesson over the next several weeks. During that time, we will talk about setting and characters. Some of the first grade classes will be working on a lion drawing lesson, and some first grade classes will be working on a hippo drawing lesson. In the meantime, the Kindergarten students will be working on a mixed media giraffe project. I look forward to you seeing those when they are done.
The best place to see student artwork will be during our Annual Arts in the Park event. That is planned for May 8th - 12th. The artwork is on display all that week in the Special Area building and parents are welcome to visit at anytime. (Please stop in at the front office for a Vistor's Pass first.) Work will also be available for viewing during the two evening events, Monday night for Kindergarten (May 8th) and Wednesday night (May 10th) for first grade. Follow Mrs. Fraser's Connection Page as well for complete details.
