    The 7th Grade Architecture class uses the website Archkidecture. It's a website with architecture links for kids. Students work together to explore the links and then choose one to teach to the class. They create a teaching poster on the wall and present the information they learned to the rest of the class. Check it out! Archkidecture Link

    Seventh grade art class includes a brief study of Greek Architecture. Students draw Greek columns in Doric, Ionic and Corinthian styles and then they design their own Greek Temple.

  • 6th Grade Apple Still Life drawings

    Posted by Kristine Blocker at 5/24/2017 12:00:00 PM

    I love these little apple still life drawings. Students work in groups to arrange the apples on their table to create an interesting composition. Some of the students prefer to take a picture of the apple arrangement with thier iPad and then draw from the photo. They are learning to use value to shade their apple shapes. Using shading and highlights gives form to their apples. Once they finish drawing their apples they can wash them and eat them if they choose.

    Mrs. Weigle and I designed this lesson to encourage design thinking and enhance their writing skills. The students worked so well together and their designs turned out great!

  • CSMS Arts Festival 2017

    Posted by Kristine Blocker at 4/5/2017 4:00:00 PM

    This was our 3rd Annual Arts Festival. Mrs. Gallant did an outstanding job of coordinating our guests. We are always proud to host the Army MI Band and JCMS Jazz band. We enjoyed performances by our own amazing CSMS band. Mrs. Ortiz' Spanish class performed a very nice dance. Mr. Griffor's STEM class performed with instruments that they had made. We also had a lovely display of illustrations from Mrs. D'Anjou's Reading class and a cool display if microscope art from Mrs. Howell's class. Mrs. Ortiz also diplayed some poetry from her Spanish students and some of them included illustrations. We had our all school portrait mural. This year everyone drew themselves as their alter-ego. The PTO and Band parents also helped out.

    The Art teachers from all three schools collaborated and chose approximately 10 pieces of art work to display at the PX. This show is in celebration of Youth Art Month. The PX managers were so helpful and we really enjoyed celebrating our young artists with thier families.

  • 2-D Art class drawing ribbons

    Posted by Kristine Blocker at 2/1/2017 4:00:00 PM

    Drawing ribbons helps reinforce the use of value (shading) and composition.
