As you enter the front doors of our main building, you are likely to be greeted by our students’ artwork. In fact, if you spend any length of time on the SBCA campus, the artwork of our talented students is featured throughout our school grounds.
Fifth and sixth grade produced the artist portraits scattered through the downstairs lobby, second floor and sun room. These art projects were based on the work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, remembered for her detailed and expressive self-portraits.
In honor of Read Across America week, kindergarten through third grade are currently working on Dr. Seuss art projects along with learning to weave. Students were also introduced to Mr. Rogers to learn how crayons are made. Mrs. Robin hopes to continue using past episode of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood to teach them different art-related information. She asks for donations of these episodes if anyone has copies of them available on DVD.
Fourth through seventh grade are working on artwork entries for the 2019 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast (Magnolia Springs) contest. The winner’s artwork will be featured on the event flyer.
High school students have been busy working on a type of visual biography called altered books. This is a relatively new art form using pages from published books or magazines to create visual images. It changes the original work into a different form, altering its appearance and/or meaning to give it personal meaning for the student.
We encourage you to take a moment to stop and admire the artwork created by our talented students during your next visit. We are grateful for Mrs. Robin and her dedication to helping students develop their God-given artistic gifts in the SBCA art program!
