Winter Fine Arts Night

Last night Edmunds Elementary School held our Winter Fine Arts Night for grades three, four, and five.

 Third and fourth grade students displayed sculptures of birds and self-portraits. It was a highlight for students to use real tools, including drills and hot glue, to create their work. 

Fifth grade students displayed light-up paper circuits, multi-layer prints, chalk pastel abstractions, and hand-sewn monster dolls.

Artwork is hung primarily on bulletin boards and large paper panels. 

Sculpture is displayed on the tops of lockers and on display tables. Some bird sculptures hung from the ceiling.

At our school the art show gets paired up with the concert for well-rounded Fine Arts evening, which helps mutually increase attendance to the event. The hallway was packed!

The concert included a traditional Sioux lullaby and folk songs from Jamaica, Germany, and South Africa. Our fabulous music teacher Betsy Nolan led an amazing finale of of the song "Hall of Fame," accompanied by student teacher Emily Luce on piano.

The two-dimensional artwork will stay up for a couple more weeks, so if you want to get a peek, stop by.
