Cylinder Seals


4th Grade is working their way through the different periods of Art History. They have been looking at art from the Ancient Near East and learned that cylinder seals were used as a signature stamp on clay tablets. Last week, they made their own personal cylinder seals out of clay and once they have dried and been fired they are going to try them out.

Cubist Faces


4th Grade recently learned that cubism tries to show something from multiple angles in the same picture.  They looked at some of Pablo Picasso’s paintings of faces and then attempted their own using oil pastels.
