Welcome to Catholic Schools Week 2019!
Catholic Schools Week is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Schools typically observe the week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to Church, local communities and the nation.
This year’s theme is Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.
Kindergarten: Students looked at the work of many artists (eg: Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Georgia O’Keeffe, David Milne, Leonardo da Vinci, Marc Chagall, Georges Seurat, Emily Carr, Henri Matisse), examining their style and the materials they used. Each student had the opportunity to discuss the details and art elements of each piece of artwork.
First and Second Grade: Students learned about “Jonah and the Whale”. They envisioned what cannot be observed directly and depict it visually. They created artworks based on imagination and observation of familiar objects and scenes.
Students finished their 3-D STREAM project in a group setting. They selected objects and explained reasons why they think it is a work of art.
Students created a two point perspective drawing of a city. They learned about architecture and discussed careers in art. We mentioned the goals of an architect.
Fifth: No school (snow day)
HSP: Students finished their digital art design.
