Vincent Van Gogh has provided a new inspiration for Miss McGlynn’s 2nd grade students. I have been so impressed with the level of committment these students have shown to their version of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Fingers ached from the hours of rubbing oil pastel into their paper to achieve rich color and texture for their work. I know that these students are very proud of themselves, and the school community is as well! Great job grade 2!!
Second grade students at the McGlynn have been studying the life, style, and works of French artist, Henri Matisse. Students have had the opportunity to work with various materials in order to duplicate his work, as well as create their own pieces using the ‘King of the Fauves’ as inspiration. These pieces are from Mrs. Ewing’s second grade class. This class truly enjoyed working on both the pastel portrait, and the colorful paper cut-outs. Students enjoyed discussing French culture as well as practicing speaking the language. C’est magnifique!
