Students from Kindergarten to second grade are exploring the wild world of POP art. They are spent some time learning about, and discussing, Andy Warhol and his artistic stylings.
Using Warhol as an inspiration, students are creating POP art paintings and drawings. They are bright, BOLD, and fun!!!
Students in third through fifth grade are currently working on the creation of MOLAS. Molas are a form of textile art originally created by the Kuna people of Panama. Mola translates to blouse. Many of these fabric artworks can be found on the clothing of the Kuna people. The subject of the Molas are inspired by the culture of the Kuna people.
Some students are making Mola's that represent American culture, while others are creating Molas that show an animal that represents them.
