Gregory Mchopa, a Tinga Tinga artist, visited Grade Four classes during art this week. He shared his work with the students and demonstrated how he paints and outlines the animals he paints. The students were very impressed by his work. This week we visited the Tinga Tinga Market and observed other artists at work too. We will now create paintings inspired by the artists and the painting we saw.
Welcome to all new and returning artists. This year we have great projects coming up and we can’t wait to get started.
Students started with sketchbook and folder labels in which they will take all their work home at the end of the year.
On Mondays and Wednesdays during lunch break, the art rooms will be available for those students who would like to have some quiet time and do extra art, drawing, card making, etc.
We are looking forward to the year and to exposing our budding artists to the wonderful world of art!
