  • Middle School This is Us Project

    Our Middle School just completed a fun and amazing This is Us project. With the help of Middle School art teacher Julia Sapir, almost every Middle Schooler (even those not currently taking an art class) created a self portrait to add to the collection that is now hanging on a wall in our Math/Science building. It's breathtaking!
  • 2D Art Student Work on Display

    If you need a little extra color in your day, please visit the Blue Room where Amanda Nelsen's 2D Art student work is on display. Inspired by Josef Albers' color theories, students have explored color relativity and relationships similar to Albers' Homage to the Square; color mixing using watercolor with one- and two-point perspective to create Imaginary Cities; and color schemes on canvas with acrylic paintings of an object. Pop by the Blue Room to enjoy this work as the semester wraps up.
  • Upper School Artists Working to Fill Up New Kiln

    Big excitement in the Upper School art space this week as a new kiln arrived to take over Ceramics room duties. The old kiln had some age on it and firings were limited to certain glazes. The new one has advanced censors and can even been controlled from afar. Teacher Amanda Nelsen shared a photo of the new kiln ready to go, as well as photos of 3D Art students working on sculpture form and tiles, and students putting the finishing touches on final independent projects with clay. We can't wait to see how the first batch comes out!
