Display My Art: UNLIMITED FREE SHIPPING EXTENDED TO TUESDAY, NOV. 20th
Kindergarten through 6th grade parents: Your kids worked hard on an art lesson that you can commemorate on a variety of keepsakes. 🎁❄️☃️ Get your holiday shopping done online and early! There are so many keepsakes to choose from: trivets, aprons, mouse pads, tote bags, desk organizers, shirts, dishtowels, notecards (which make great thank-you notes!) and so. much. more. UNLIMITED FREE SHIPPING (no minimum purchase required) to multiple addresses anywhere in the continental U.S. on orders placed by Tuesday, November 20th! Bonus: a portion of each sale benefits our schools! If you misplace your order code, simply call 1-800-394-2090. Below are the themes our art teachers worked on with each grade.

Also, check out the fun collage below containing a couple of artworks from each grade! Questions? Email Randi Kaplan: Randibeth@hotmail.com.

Kindergarten: Heart Handprints: We painted K’s hands with paint and printed them in a shape of a heart.
1st Grade Georgia O’Keefe Inspired Flowers: Big, beautiful and bright flowers drawn from looking at flower photos, using crayon and marker.
2nd Grade Romero Britto Inspired Self-Portraits: Using a mirror, 2nd graders learned how to draw their faces in proportion and detail with borrowing inspiration from artist Romero Britto for background pattern design. Portraits are colored neatly with a combination of marker and crayon.
3rd Grade Memoji’s: In this project, third grade students thought of characteristics of themselves and turned those into emojis that represent them.
4th Grade Letter Design: Fourth Grade students learned about company logos. Each student chose a letter that was special to them and transformed it into a unique letter logo. This letter became the focal point and is a repeated design within their artwork.
5th Grade Landscape with Linear Perspective: Students learned some of the “tricks” artists use to create a sense of depth in a landscape drawing. Landscape layers, a vanishing point, size, placement and detail were all introduced to make a unique landscape.
6th Grade Symmetrical Totem Designs: Students learned about animal symbolism in the totem pole designs of the Pacific Northwest Coast Indians and created their own symmetrical totem image using their initials.

From the Wyoming Middle School Parent Advisory Committee
