First Grade C students, in their Visual Arts class, visited Nogales School for the Preschool Arts Festival.
They participated with three projects: 1. Historical self-portraits in oil pastel in which they were drawn with face masks, this being a work that remains as evidence of the current time of pandemic. 2. Botanical illustrations in which they included organic material defining the chosen species. 3. Ethnic masks assembled with recycled material and non-conventional material.
Prekindergarten and Kindergarten participated with drawings of tigers made with natural pigments such as turmeric, beetroot and achiote, which were extracted by themselves for the celebration of the New Year of the Chinese Tiger. They also made a large-scale landscape integrating organic material with various paintings and some birds from the savannah.
We received positive feedback from attendees of the exhibition, which was replicated at Rochester after being exhibited at UNCOLI, defining the environmental focus of the school’s artistic productions.
