Today we are taking a look at Edgar Degas - an influential Impressionist artist. He is most well known for painting ballerinas, but did you know he was also a sculptor and worked with other mediums as well? After looking at some of his work we will then create artwork inspired by Degas. Projects might include learning how to gesture draw, tracing the figures of our friends as they strike a pose, and filling in the figure silhouettes with symbols and scenes from our lives that are meaningful to us! Younger students will create 2-dimensional figure sculptures using pipe cleaners and other materials. We might even create stages and backdrops for our dancing figures! It is sure to be a very educational and fun day.

Let’s make some art about one of our favorite four legged friends - the fox! Depending on the age, students may learn about the red fox, arctic fox, or even the big eared fennec fox, along with their differing habitats and animal friends. Older students will use handbuilding methods to create a ceramic fox, and younger students will create a multi-step, mixed media fox painting and collage that is sure to be treasured for years to come.
