School's out and I hope you are still letting your imagination run wild!!!

I hope you had the chance to view my video that included the 5 KCB winners for the 2021 calendar.  In other exciting news, Lina Maslo’s  (the author/illustrator we interviewed about her first book Free as Bird) SECOND book was released the 1st week of MAY!!!!!!  PLEASE check out this exciting video including her two daughters for more information:

Our last week’s Art Splash – Art @ Home activities focus on a review of the principles of design.  Here are the ones that are most commonly used:  balance, emphasis, variety, movement, variety, rhythm, unity, proportion, and pattern.  You can choose the activity that interests you vs. focusing on the level.  Pattern is the key principle of the easy lessons, while in the intermediate level rhythm and movement with string pull, fluid art are the focus. Finally, the advanced level includes pour painting and a neat video about which principles of design overlap for both art and music.  These require adult supervision but would really make a fun summer project!  Daphne and I (with Ben) have plans to do more of the pour painting and string art this summer, so will post pictures!!!  I hope you will send me some pictures of your familiy with their any art!

It was wonderful to see you as you pulled through to pick up your belongings.  I was wearing art inspired by Lillian Schooley, whose design I chose following our Lilly Pulitzer unit as promised!  It was a tough choice; they were all fantastic.  I hope you enjoyed looking through the art you brought home in your bags and buckets with your family.   I will continue to miss you as I have since the last chance we had to create art together in March at SJE .  Stay safe friends and remember to reach out if you need any art advice!  The free time sites and photo galleries, along with the art splash activities will remain in place.  I hope that you will continue to share photos of the art you create this summer and bring anything you would like shown off in the halls with you Open House night😊  Feel free to access all the lessons on my page all summer and utilize the free time art sites, look through the pictures in the photo galleries to stay connected to your friends, etc. etc. 

Creatively Yours,

Mrs. Landis
