Our eighth grade class has studied the works of Max Ernst, Salvidor Dali and Rene Magritte. We looked at the philosophy of the surrealist movement. Each student then used their own dream imagery and automatic drawings to create a sculpture. They are really very interesting and extremely creative. Good job grade eight!

Delaunay Designs

Our 5th grade class studied the artist Sonia Delaunay. We loved how she took geometric shapes and overlapped them to create interesting designs.
Each student worked very hard and created their own abstract work of art.
