Welcome to ASB Art!

We're starting this brand new school year in a brand new art room!  We've also got brand new walls to cover with art and places to leave our mark.  Each floor will be starting the year with a collaborative mural inspired by an influential artist and reflecting a particular color scheme.

1st floor: KG mural inspired by Jackson Pollock
2nd Floor: Grade 1 and 2 mural inspired by Georges Seurat and pointillism, reflecting primary and secondary colors
3rd Floor: Grade 3 mural inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, reflecting analogous colors (warm and cool color groups)
4th Floor: Grade 4 mural inspired by Pop Artists such as Andy Warhol and Jim Dine, reflecting complimentary colors
5th Floor: Grade 5 mural inspired by Op Art and Zentangle designs, reflecting black and white high-contrast art with the use of accent color

It's been a fun and at times messy start to the year.  *Note that we're using acrylic paints to ensure long lasting murals, but these paints do not wash out of clothing*  Each student will be helping contribute to these murals, and also adding their own handprint to the completed mural to allow each student to start the year by leaving their mark on their new school! Check out the murals on each floor near the elevators (so far we've started 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors- look for the others to come soon!)
