The Japanese School Art Exchange 2014

Each year our school takes part in an art exchange hosted by The Japanese School. Two pieces of art are selected from each grade level from K-5. The work is then exhibited at The Japanese School along side work from other international schools here in Singapore. We also get the pleasure of sharing work created by the students at The Japanese School, which will soon be on display soon in our foyer outside Elementary Office B. In the meantime, take a look at the work that will be representing Singapore American School at the exhibition this year.

Drawing With Light One Last Time

We have wrapped up our Drawing With Light Unit. My grade five students have had so much fun creating these photos. They may have just learned a little along the way about gesture and contour drawings and shutter speeds. I have already posted the work from most of my grade five classes but here are the last two.

And the Oscar Goes To…

Sadly, Do Your Part in Art, has been overlooked at the Oscars this year, but the ES art teachers here at SAS have been working on the video to help their students remember to do their part in helping to keep the art studio clean, safe and a great place to create. Here is the trailer for our soon to be released video.

Shoeper Linocut Prints

My grade five students have been busy learning about linocut prints. They started their project by searching for great shoes on the internet or on their feet. Once they drew their shoe they transferred the drawing to their lino block. Using a gouge, and remembering the safety rules they created a relief carving of the shoe. Soon they were inking up their blocks using brayers and creating some wonderfully inspired prints. Take a look at just some of the work from all of my grade five classes.

Let The Shoe Begin…

I don’t know how this happened, but my classroom is looking like a fancy shoe factory days. Grade four just finished creating their colorful flip flops and grade five is just starting their shoe themed lino cut projects.

Take a look at the fun Ms Redlin’s class had with their fanciful flip flops.
