Cottage Corner

In our class, we have work in the areas of art, music and practical life. One of the works that is in practical life is sewing. We can sew a button on fabric. We can also sew a snowflake. There also is yoga. We can find a quiet space to do some relaxing poses.

We learn about the artist of the month every month. We have work that helps us learn about the artist of the month. The artist this month is M.C. Escher. The projects this month are: tessellation, geometric collage and perspective. We studied Vincent Van Gogh. We recreated his famous painting: “A Sunflower”. We also learned about Wassily Kandinsky. We reproduced his famous painting: “Squares with Concentric Circles”.  Last month’s artist was Jackson Pollack, he did abstract art.

We also have a lot of music work. We can practice piano. We write music notes and write notes on the treble clef.  We also have a Musician of the week chosen by a student.   

         

WE THINK PRACTICAL LIFE IS FUN!         WE MAKE PRACTICAL LIFE FUN!           

 THE TEACHERS MAKE LEARNING FUN!                  WE LOVE SCHOOL!
