Lausanne families were invited to the JK Art Walk in Blackmon Gallery this morning for an opportunity to hear students speak about their artwork and to see their pieces on display.
“Setting it up in a gallery format is such a special way for our JK kids to show off their knowledge and their art with family and friends," Junior Kindergarten teacher Lindy Roberson said. "I’m always amazed to watch their knowledge and creative imagination come to life in their artist inspired work!”
Junior Kindergartners have been learning about how people use art to express themselves. Along with the Primary Years Programme (PYP) unit of inquiry on Artistic expression, the students have studied a large variety of famous artists.
As a culmination, the JK classes created a final masterpiece inspired by one (or many) of their favorite artists using different art techniques they've been exploring.
“I felt happy because whenever I look at my art it makes me happy and other people got to see it," Naim Kumar '33 said.
"My art was good because my mom said, Ohhh, that looks pretty," Gaia Griffin '33 said.
“It looked like a real art museum," Phillip Castello '33 said.
It was a great morning with the Lausanne community!
