In every grade, we are learning that art should tell a story. To keep that focus in mind, our first grade figure sculpture is not only a sculpture of a person, but of an artist, a musician, or perhaps a veterinarian. The sculpture can let us know about who the person is by what it might be wearing or holding in its hand. Here are a few examples of our completed sculptures. You can see all of our work by following this link to the first grade exhibition on artsonia. http://www.artsonia.com/schools/school.asp?id=114839

In my class, students are given the chance to explore different materials and fun new techniques as they develop their signature style. Some young artists love to draw with a pencil, some like to paint on canvas or create images in a digital format, while others prefer working with clay and molding three-dimensional forms. In my classroom, we use a variety of materials allowing all artists to experiment and figure out which type of art they like the best. At Ranney School, we place a strong emphasis on originality and celebrate artistic differences, always nurturing and encouraging the imagination of every student.
