Moving 4th at the McGlynn

Have you ever been so deep into a project at home or at work, that for a brief moment you forget why you started?  But then, after stepping back and taking a deep breath you see what you have created and it suddenly becomes clear!  Our fourth graders spent much of their year working on very detailed works of art which took (in some cases) over a month to complete.  From Kandinsky, to Seurat to Hundertwasser, these students immersed themselves in the styles of some of the greatest artists to have lived.  I am beyond proud of their level of focus during these past few months, when it could have become easy to lose sight of our focus.  Please enjoy these works by Miss Byrne’s and Mrs. Prouty’s students.
