The Coolidge Art Studio has been abuzz this week as classes finish artworks and transition to new explorations and challenges with various media. First graders recently completed making paper by hand, and are now learning about architect Zaha Hadid, who will serve as inspiration for their upcoming 3D work. Third graders started to generate ideas for their ‘power plushie,’ a unique stuffed creature that embodies a ‘real life’ superpower, such as kindness, caring, or bravery, after finishing paintings inspired by American artist Alma Thomas. Fifth graders wrapped up their printmaking exploration this week and will transition to using their printing blocks to create 3D work, while kindergarten artists learned how to use carding combs to prepare wool for future projects. And to top it off, the displays across campus have changed as well! Now showing in the Schoolhouse is work by third grade (displayed in the hallway outside the Health Office and Mrs. Pryor’s office), first grade (in the Coolidge hallway); and in the Barn, kindergarten has work on display on the second floor.
