“Look at this color!”
“I mixed this one, and this one, and all of the colors together and this is what it made!”
-First Grade Color Explorers
The Kinder and 1st grade crews are learning through their senses about their communties. We are making self portraits in art, and thinking about what colors represent us…and then finding the “recipes” to blend them. This year, the crews are taking turns with some free form watercolor design for our classroom tablecloths! It’s first grade’s turn this week…
Hope your student led conference week is filled with exploration, light and color!
-Ms. Shannon and First Grade Crew
We’re kicking off 2016-2017 at City View with color, creativity, and fun! Students are beginning their original art projects, an opportunity for them to express part of who they are through the language of art. We’re talking about composition, line and shape families, patterns, and how to “tell a story” with the details in our artwork.
This year, we will be exploring everything from bridge building to botanical drawing to filmaking! Students have already been doing some impressive, high quality work for their original art, and I can’t wait to see where it takes them🙂
Thanks for reading. Keep checking back with us!

The middle school students at City View are proud to present their show, Wolves, displayed for the month of May at Insomnia Coffee’s Baseline location!
Our class had a bunch of materials that we used during this project including, charcoal, ink pens, paint, ink, print making blocks, etc. To print make you need a print making block, a light piece of carbon paper and a ball point pen to draw on the paper and over the block. Then add any color of ink to make a print on a thick piece of paper.

The 3rd graders in our school were studying about ancient native
American artifacts and artifacts from today. They looked at pictures made by Jim Dine and try to make ink art like him. They also wrote poems about what they are drawing about.
Check out their art show at the Shute Park library in February and March.
