Art 3: Plaster Sculptures

Art 3 students spent the past two weeks casting their plaster and then sculpting it! This was the first time for these students to use this medium! They did a great job and worked so hard to complete these on time!

Art 1: Tessellations

Tessellation- the process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps.

Last semester, Art 1 students worked on tessellations for their independent study project. If students finished an assignment or project early, they would work on these. They turned out great!

Westwood Mini-mester

Once again, OCS was blessed with the opportunity to work with the beautiful children and staff who make up Westwood Elementary School. For my mini-mester, Art for the Heart, a group of junior and senior girls prepared and taught art lessons to the whole second grade! The girls were broken into groups of 5-6. While one group taught, the other girls worked 1 on 1 with students, helping them complete their art projects. Our goal was to give and to love the kids at Westwood- but we all left feeling like they had given so much more to us. They are precious and we were blessed to have the opportunity to work with them again.
