Students, staff, parents and visitors to Spring Grove Public Schools were recently treated to a student art show that was on display during home basketball games.
Seventh-grade students learned about the artists of Mexico and using that as
inspiration they created these wooden sculptures that are Oaxican Animals. Claire Urell created this animal. Once again, the students did a little recycling using wood scraps from the school’s wood shop.
It was the culmination of the seventh, eighth and tenth-grade students' first semester art classes.
The seventh-grade students' class had focused on the elements and principles of design with a focus on color. The eighth-grade students went into further depth in these areas and the tenth-grade students focused on graphic design.
"It was fun to see all the talented artists here in our school," remarked Spring Grove Public School art teacher, Renee Eiken. "The visiting parents and the locals all enjoyed the show."
