Art ShowJune has meant lots of art to share! Here's what happened:
The Morse School Art Show was held at Gallery 263 from May 30th - June 3rd. Over 200 works of art were on display, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, and prints. Over 75 students and their families attended the artists' reception! Thank you to all the parents and teachers, and especially Gallery 263 for helping make our 9th annual show a success!

The Special START SHOW was held on June 8th. Every preschooler had multiple works of art to share with their families. Artwork focused on themes from their classroom curriculum, ranging from fall leaves to snowflakes to construction vehicles, and more!

The 4th graders will display landscape paintings alongside their National Park presentations on June 15th. Ancient Chinese brush paintings, as well as American photographer, Ansel Adams, inspire their landscapes. Students each selected a region of the US to portray, and had to include a foreground and background. They painted with a range of gray values and experimented with brushstrokes created with bamboo brushes.

The 5th graders will have a special bulletin board in the main lobby featuring self-portraits, titled Then and Now. Self-portraits from their very first day of kindergarten will be displayed side by side with their updated 5th grade self-portraits. Happy summer! See you in the fall for more fantastic art making!
