Art Donations

I want to say a big THANK YOU to anyone that has sent in donations so far this school year!  If you have any old craft items that you want to get rid of, please send them my way.  We can also use old wooden furniture or basically anything wooden that we can paint and use in our Art Silent Auction in March.  If you have other items that you would like to donate but are not sure if we can use it, please send me an e-mail and I will let you know.

Thanks again, and looking forward to a wonderful school year with your children!!!

Busy Season!

Went through three months without blogging shame on me!!!  We were so busy in the art room!  Square 1 Art was due, and we had to complete, order and distribute in the months of October and November.  We had to create ceramic plates for our 2nd Annual Dessert Theater at the Civic Center, decorations for the Thanksgiving Feast at OCES, and create props for the 5th Grade Musical at the Civic Center and school. I will try to post some pictures from all or some of those events.  More exciting events to come!!!  We have the OCAF Youth Art Month Show in March, Cultural Arts Night/Artome' Art Show at OCES in March, and then things can begin to wind down a bit.

I'm still accepting donations of wooden furniture, anything artsy that you want to donate for the art silent auction on Cultural Arts Night.  I also need donations such as craft items, Lego's, Kleenex, Clorox wipes, tinfoil, wax paper, yarn, beads, etc...  Please e-mail me at lbacks@oconeeschools.org if you have any questions about items that you may want to donate to our school.

Take care, and check back with me soon!

Lego Center Donations

I wanted to say a very big THANK YOU to the parents and students that have donated Lego's for our new Lego Center in the art room.  The students have enjoyed using the Lego's for the Arty Party (Center's Day) that their class earned through good behavior.  I also want to thank you all for the donations of school and art supplies!  Your generosity is very much appreciated!!!  Here are a few pictures of students using the Lego's during an Arty Party.



Off to a great start with Square 1 Art!

Students are busy with the creation of their Square 1 Art designs for the 2015-2016 school year!  3rd graders are doing an oil pastel/wax crayon resist design.  4th grade created their backgrounds with a watercolor wash and rice, and 5th grade has a background made of torn tissue paper and water (the dye runs with the water and creates what looks like a tie dye t-shirt).  All students will get to select the theme of their choice.   Pictures of the artwork in progress will be posted soon, as well as information about Square 1 Art.
