Visiting Artist, Kate Kern!

We had the good fortune of working with artist Kate Kern. She demonstrated drawing and ink painting techniques and showed us images of her work and her stop motion animation. Grade 3 students are creating large plant part artworks largely inspired by her work and Grade 4 students are creating circular mixed-media artworks also inspired by her work. Both will be displayed in the Sunny Hallway for the Elementary School’s collaborative installation!

Not only did we have the valuable and unique experience of meeting a working artist, but students were also able to really get into her artwork by visiting an immersive installation in the High School Art Department’s gallery that she created with high school art students. See your child’s Seesaw account for a reflection on their experience visiting this artwork.
