St Leo's Auction 2012-2013

St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013 St. Leo's Auction was a success!  All of our group artwork found loving homes.  It's taken some time but I finally have photos of these wonderful works! Above is the Starry Night Chair inspired by Vincent Van Gogh.  This chair was hand-painted by my 7th graders.  I was very tempted to keep it! St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013 St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013
5th grade learned about the work of Louise Nevelson She creates this amazing sculptures from found materials that have incredible depth and details. Each 5th grader received a puzzle piece and built it up with foam shapes and other found objects. Spray paint it a solid gold, and voila!

Each student received a square of the painting to recreate with oil pastels. Precision was the key in order for lines and objects to match up and I think they did an excellent job! They were so proud of the work, once they saw it put together. St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013 St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013 3rd grade did a super quick and easy work with Popsicle sticks. Each students had to create a pattern or design on these small canvases. I love the quilt effect that it created once all together. St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013 2nd grade experimented with alcohol ink, special ink that stays on smooth surfaces like ceramics. These tiles were sitting around my artroom, begging to become coasters! We were able to auction off a three bundles of these beauties! St. Leo's Auction: 2012-2013 1nd grade learned about the hearts of Jim Dine just in time for Valentine's day! They created these lovable hearts with oil pastels.

It was backed with fleece to make this a super comfy blanket to snuggle with!

Inspired by the movie Up, students colored their finger with washable marker and contributed their print to make balloons to hold up our school. Luckily our school principal got this one!
