Welcome to our Art Room!
In the art room, students focus on creating projects from
multiple medias including ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking,
photography, papier-mâché, and mixed media.
Students are exposed to an extensive art vocabulary that
encourages synthesis of thought, design, and practice.
students will learn about why different cultures create art
and how these cultures shape the way students view their
own world. The students will also study local artists, contemporary
artists, outsider artists, and artists that have made a lasting
impact on our world today.
Our school now has two public art installations created
by students working with Chicago artists Ginny
Phil Schuster. Ginny Sykes directed the creation of a two-story
tile mosaic that greets our community as they enter the main
door. Phil Schuster taught students how to create cment
conifers, tile bonsai trees, and a stunning pagoda that enhances
our Asian garden. Please stop by the front of the school
and admire the new art!
