Welcome Back!

To share a few photos of our December adventures, our students celebrated the past holiday break by making some fun artwork to share with you. Our Art Club students prepared a few holiday treats by studying values for a lovely lit up candy cane  (thanks to Pinterest). They also tried out printmaking by drawing a winter scene  to make a snow globe. Our youngest artists got their hands rolling and twisting to make our experimental paper designs in trees or snowmen.

Happy drawing,
Mrs. Alejos
