1st graders learned about the unique artwork of Salvador Dali and how he created art from his dreams! They learned that his art was called surrealistic because it was realistic looking but could never really happen in real life. Our artists created these dream-like birds with super long legs while practicing their skills with blending. They chose warm or cool colored backgrounds and put patterns into the birds!

5th grade artists learned about ancient Egyptian wall art called friezes. They created their own Egyptian friezes using Ancient egyptian rules for body positioning and correct human figure proportions. Then they learned about how the ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics instead of the alphabet. They used hieroglyphics to decorate the sides of their artwork!
