We just finished our first week of classes in our newly remodeled Art Room! First and second grades created paintings with shapes like Pablo Picasso did in his Three Musicians. Third and fourth grades created 'One Word Poems' inspired by Robert Indiana's Love Sculpture. Fifth and sixth grades began a study of religious art and created tile designs inspired by the Dome of the Rock. Finally seventh and eighth grades began learning Photoshop as the explored Romare Bearden's The Block.

Approaching Abstraction: African American Art from the permanent collection is currently on display at La Salle University Art Museum. Third and fourth grades toured the exhibition today with Museum Educator, Miranda Clark Binder. The students were so excited to see paintings and prints that we looked at in class in real life. Our trip enriched the learning we did earlier in the year about Pennsylvania artists and traditions. You can download the PDF below to learn about some of the artists whose work we saw today.
