SOUTH SCHOOL ART NEWS! Hello and Happy New Year from Mrs. Jodice! I have really enjoyed my time thus far as the new Art Teacher at South School in addition to continuing teaching art at JFK. The students are extremely talented and motivated to learn! I have been holding on to all of the South students’ artwork completed to date as it is my intention to have an art show in the spring. Students will soon be able to choose their favorite piece completed so far and the other pieces will then go home for you to enjoy. Some projects complete by Grade 4 students to date are spider web paintings, fall tree tissue art, Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers inspired oil pastel drawings, metamorphosis drawings, and winter birch tree paintings. Grade 5 students have designed their own emojis, completed scarecrow perspective drawings, and have designed their own dream treehouses. Grade 6 students have completed fish designs with a watercolor wash, optical art drawings, papier mache sculptures, Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night inspired pastel drawings, and yarn weavings on looms. All South School students worked hard on self-portraits for the Display My Art fundraiser. In addition, all students made a Pinwheel for Peace in order to celebrate International Peace Day. All pinwheels were displayed on the stone garden of South School. The art room is always accepting donations of newspaper, magazines, and plastic containers.
Thank you! Sincerely, Mrs. Jodice Art Teacher/ South School and JFK
