We begin class with an art warm up where students take a few minutes to practice specific skills that ends up as a finished artwork.
Red Room students practiced tracing, cutting, applying glue, making a tint with paint, and adding texture to create these adorable birds perched on a branch.
"L" is for Linear Perspective
Blue Room students practiced drawing in one-point perspective to create these architectural letter buildings.
Hello, my name is Patti Rowland and I am the art teacher for grades K - 8 at Blacksburg New School. I feel very fortunate to be able to have each class for an hour two times a week. Teaching at Blacksburg New School gives me the opportunity to explore and create a curriculum that incorporates choice-based learning, which serves the varying processing styles of our young artists.
