Evergreen Mask Art

We are SO lucky to have the Evergreen Cultural Center so close and so full of wonderful Art Programs.  This time we learned how to make clay masks!  Later on, we painted them back in the classroom.  That was the MESSIEST Art Project we have ever done! We had to paint the masks black and then rub the top layer off… there was BLACK PAINT EVERYWHERE!  In the end, the Masks were AMAZING!

Here are the finished products!

Evergreen Center – Fall

We are so lucky to be close to the Evergreen Art Centre… we had TWO field trips in the fall!

Our first field trip was a PERFORMANCE by Bouge de la called “Bedtime“.


You can watch a bit of the show on YouTube because we weren’t allowed to take any photographs.
(Parents, be aware:  at the end of the YouTube it offers a variety of shows so only click on the “Bedtime” link!)

Our next field trip was an Art Gallery viewing of “Perfect Geometry” by Laurie Papou and a workshop called “Up Close and Far Away“.  We learned about hot and cold colours and sketched the geometric patterns found inside slices of different fruits and vegetables.  Then we painted the HOT coloured foods in COLD colours and the COLD coloured foods in HOT colours!  The workshop was SO MUCH fun, and the results were AMAZING!

Andy Warhol Christmas Tree

We finally got to use our pastels on an Andy Warhol style Christmas tree! The design we used to inspire us was a project from http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/ 

Andy Warhol’s new style of art became popular in the 1960’s, and eventually he became the world’s most famous Pop Art Artist. Warhol made the Campbell Soup Can famous too! 

Here’s the “real” Andy Warhol Christmas tree.
