Happy Last Day of School

Have a fantastic summer! Don't forget to read, travel, swim, play outside and do some art!

Cats! A benefit for Purradise!

Purradise is a wonderful local cat shelter. 6th grade students created these works of art with oil pastel, as they thought carefully about texture. A number of the students brought in photos of their own cats to use as models. The artwork will be auctioned off at a benefit gala for Purradise on July 22 at Crissy Farm in Great Barrington. 6th grade students were very generous to donate their artwork as they know how important helping our furry friends is.

Stop Motion Animation inspired by the Art of Keith Haring! 5th grade

My 5th grade class loves the artwork of Keith Haring! The bright forms and shapes combined with movement are are perfect for stop motion animation. Students worked in groups and created figures with sculpey, and made backgrounds and props to tell a story. They did a great job!
