This week I would like to recognize 3 students as artists of the week. First I have to say the whole FMS Third Grade has really been making some amazing art! We looked at the Canadian artist Ted Harrison and his fantastically colored arctic landscapes. Third Graders have been making chalk landscapes using this artist's overlapping hills and brightly colored skies as a jumping off point. Today’s first student is quiet and super nice! She actually made this piece the week before, but it’s so good I have to recognize it! Her carefully rendered hills and overlapping clouds in the strangely colored sky earn her a place as an Artist of the Week. Awesome Job Kaleyn Hickey in Ms. Newkirk’s class! Next is a young woman is also in Ms. Newkirk’s class. She is not quiet, but she is nice too. She always challenges herself with her art projects. In the foreground of her landscape is a railing with shading and so many examples of overlapping. This one of those pieces I didn’t notice until class was over for some time, but then was amazed. Amazing Job Petra Thelen! The 3rd student has been working on a ventriloquist dummy in Enrichment Art. It finally came together and then we made this impromptu video of it singing a popular song. It’s awesome! Nice Job Caiden Ashton! And nice job Irsa for doing the lights in the video!
