Grade 5 artists have been working on an inspiration painting for some time now. If you are the parent of a 5th grader you may have been asked to help them choose someone that inspires them. There are a number of students who are creating paintings inspired by family members, which is really fantastic, and such a great way for them to show what their families mean to them!
While working on these paintings, the 5th graders have been practicing a variety of painting techniques, executing a monochromatic color scheme, and abstracting a representational drawing. Some of the classes will also be writing an artist statement to go along with their work.
