Final Reminder for Seventh Grade Students

If your seventh grade student has not completed his or her one-point perspective name illustration, he or she must finish it at home and return it Monday, November 11th. This assignment will be included in the first trimester grade. 

Seventh Grade Students Must Turn In Artwork Monday, November 11th

If your seventh grade student has not completed his or her one-point perspective name illustration, he or she must finish it at home and return it Monday, November 11th. This assignment will be included in the first trimester grade. 

First grade students listened to a folktale titled, In A Dark Dark Wood. Then they created their own versions of the setting of this tale and wrote descriptions of their haunted houses. You can see their neighborhood in the front hallway at Seton. 
Third grade students learned about positive and negative space, contrasting colors and symmetry as they created spooktacular forests. They are displayed in the front hall.
Fourth grade students wrote and shared descriptive words as they viewed a photograph of an abandoned, ornate, rickety, old mansion. Then students used their lists as inspiration as they created haunted house collages. This week our artists also were writers as they described their haunted creations. Their art and descriptions can be viewed in the hall. More photos can be viewed in my photo album. Happy Halloween to All!

Art Club For Students In 6th, 7th And 8th Grade

Beginning Wednesday, August 28th!

Open Art Studio will be held Wednesdays from 2:45 pm until 4 pm. After dismissal, students will meet Mrs. Mascolino in the art lab.This opportunity is free of charge and is available for students who wish to learn more about the creative process. Students will be given the opportunity to work with a variety of art materials. They will be encouraged to experiment, innovate, research and create. Students will be required to work in a safe and considerate manner, assist with clean up and encourage their fellow classmates. Artists, writers, musicians and many professionals often work in the same space in order to share not only resources but advice and encouragement as well. My hope is to foster a supportive and creative environment for students to thrive.

If your sixth, seventh or eighth grade student is interested in coming to Open Art Studio, please email Mrs. Mascolino (mascolinoa@saseas.org). Please pick up your student in the rear parking lot of the St. Andrew Campus at 4 PM.

Kindergarten learned so much this year! They learned about art techniques, animals, habitats, illustrators and authors and so much more! I hope you take a few minutes to talk with your children about their art. It's so good for them and you too! Check out some more photos in my album "Kindergarten Art Class".
I think everyone is well aware that our first grade students love to build! Of course I encouraged this and I loved teaching them every week. They made all kinds of paper prisms, cylinders, cones and so on. They loved creating sculptures and school models.Our final project helped our students review and teach others about the life cycle of a butterfly. Check out the photos in my album "First Grade Art Class".
In March I took the second grade students' vase drawings and sculptures to the Cincinnati Art Museum for a special educators' program. The second grade students were introduced to art history, local history, Ohio owls and so much more. I love teaching this group of energetic, lovable artists! Check out some more photos in my "Second Grade Art Class" album.
Third grade students made "smarties", drew them and created all kinds of accommodations for their new collector items. This year they also practiced watercolor painting, created their own monograms and symbols not to mention their own worlds inspired by Ed Emberley. I hope they keep their drawing and creating habits up! You can find more photos in my album titled "Third Grade Art Sampler".
