This month we are celebrating the arts at Carlisle with a virtual art show. Part VI of the show features selected works by students in the 5th grade, created under the direction of lower school art instructor Sherry Moschler. Enjoy the show!
Multicultural Plaster Masks – As part of an art history lesson, students learned why masks are important to many different cultures throughout the world. The students explored form and color using tempera paints.
Faux Stain Glass Window Art – Students inquired about the history of stained glass art, as well as abstract and nonobjective art. They created their own faux stain glass windows, focusing on colors, shapes, and lines.
Animals of Australia – Students studied the arts of specific cultures and people and created pictures inspired by Aboriginal Australians.
Katsushika Hokusai’s The Great Wave-Inspired Watercolor Paintings – As part of an art history lesson, students learned about the artist Katsushika Hokusai and his use of art to convey emotion. The students used watercolors to create depth paintings.
