This month we are celebrating the arts at Carlisle with a virtual art show. Part III of the show features selected works by students in the 2nd grade, created under the direction of lower school art instructor Sherry Moschler. Please enjoy the show and check back throughout the month for more galleries.
Frida Kahlo Portraits with Animals – As part of an art history lesson, students studied Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), a Mexican painter known for her many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by nature. Students learned about self-portraits and creating drawings with both a background and foreground.
King Tut’s Mask – As part of an art history lesson, students studied ancient Egyptian art and practiced techniques in shape, color, and pattern to create illustrations of King Tut’s Mask.
Keith Haring Inspired Art – As part of an art history lesson, students studied Keith Haring (1958-1990), an American pop artist known for his spontaneous chalk drawings in New York City subways. Students learned about color, shape, and creating movement in a 2-dimensional piece of art.
Claude Monet Watercolor Impressionist Gardens – As part of an art history lesson, students studied Claude Monet (1840-1926), a French painter who was the founder of French Impressionist painting. They learned about the Impressionism period of art and the use of color, shape, and line.
