We're back from spring break and BAIS students are hard at work exploring how visual arts are used as a means of telling stories. Here's just a little of what we've done so far!
PreK and Kindy artists made these fantastic Gruffalo-inspired puppets
First graders worked in the style of Aboriginal dot painters
Grade 4/5 students examined the importance of symbols in Egyptian art and designed their own symbolic steles to represent their personal values
Middle School students began exploring the world of stop-motion animation!
Thanks to everyone who stopped in to see the artwork on display at the Ebunjan Theatre on Friday, and congratulations to all of our students on their wonderful performance of Disney's The Jungle Book!
Art is CREATIVE! Art is EXPRESSIVE! Art is MAGIC! Art is BEAUTIFUL! Art is INSPIRATIONAL!
Art is UNIQUE! Art is FULL OF VIBRANT COLOR! Art is EVERYWHERE! Art is LIFE!
These are just a few of the things that BAIS students and families expressed yesterday at our first Art Celebration of Learning. In order to share what we've they've been doing in art class, our students turned the playground into an interactive art museum. Artists in each grade had an opportunity to talk about their work and participate in student-led art activities. Congratulations to all of the student presenters who shared their artwork yesterday, and enormous thanks to our Grade 4/5 and Middle School students, who took the lead on planning and facilitating this event. They did an incredible job making it a unique and engaging experience for everyone who attended.
