Sketching Spoleto

Ciao!

Visual Art students are busy wrapping up their self portrait project and diving into their second project inspired by the town of Spoleto. Students are challenged in this project to explore their surroundings and draw or paint from observation a scene which illustrates an area that reflects their experience within Spoleto.

Loulou worked hard to complete her charcoal self portrait. We look forward to her presentation of the progression of this piece during the performance class tomorrow morning.

 Jenna sits with her completed oil painting as the visual arts class hosts a critique. She will be presenting the progression of her oil painting, explaining her challenges and successes through the process of painting this realistic self-portrait with a stain glass window background inspired by Spoleto’s churches.

Tonight we had a fantastic talent show!!! Students showcased some fun talents such as Eliza aka “Mad Skills” and Julia aka “MC” singing the theme song to “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.”

We also had a special guest appearance from The Spice Girls! (aka Loulou, Abigail, Harrison, Hannah, and Anna).

Gracie and Kiara collaborated on their own mash up of Taylor Swift and Adele.

The talent show was a great success, with many students performing and providing laughs while earning points for their contrada.

A domani!
