|Music & Art|
This is a Virtual Art Show I created in Google Slides. It has photos I took of some of the art that was completed at school (that I hadn't handed back yet) and a sampling of what we've been doing at home. The artwork that hasn't been given back yet will be handed back at the beginning of the next school year. There are more examples of the art we completed during the school year (and past years) on the St. Thomas Art and Music Gallery website, which you can visit by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
We will be watching the Virtual Art Show in our last weekly Zoom.

Assignment for the week:

Artist's Choice: You can do any type of art you would like and submit a picture to me. For example, it can be a directed drawing video from YouTube that you follow, a picture you paint, something you build or sculpt (think Legos or Play-Doh), a photograph of something or someone that's artistic taken by you, OR you can visit a virtual art museum (with your parents' permission) and tell me where you went and something you liked there.
Keep up the creativity and Happy Summer!
