Fine Arts

We created a picture within a picture during Fine Arts Week.  We are learning that (just like in writing) the more details that you add to your work, the more interesting your work becomes!

Georgia Face Jugs

During Fine Arts Week, Valerie McIntyre an artist from Out of the Box, visited our art class to teach us how to create North Georgia Face Jugs.  Then the children created the wonderful faces in the slideshow below.  The You Tube gives the background of these jugs.

These faces will be fired and then painted.
