from the ARTIST WORKSHOP
There is a variety of art in the halls of EKES. Near the library there is a large dragon drawn by Miss George. Slowly students have been coloring coffee filters to use as scales on the body of the dragon. Details for the head and wing are evolving. This is in tribute to the visit of author/illustrator Ralph Masiello, scheduled for January 23.
As you progress down the hallway, you will see the collaborative work done on December 15, planned by the Theme Committee, and inspired by Peter Reynolds’ The Dot. Everyone used oil pastels to put color on paper, and added black paint for details and a unifying element. Each is eye-catching separately and together it is a powerful statement of cooperation.
Near the end of the hallway, at the ramp, another collaborative is developing. Composed of art projects from 4W and 3S, there are repurposed postcard woven pieces, and watercolor depictions of the paper baskets 3S made before the winter break. They composed a poem to accompany the visual.
The circular weavings are being added as completed.
