The Big Blue Wall Continued!

Each grade continues to come out and put a little bit of color onto the wall. It's coming along!  1st Grade painted last week and here's a snapshot of my time with them.

Fine Arts Night at Herod...a Fine Evening!

We tried something new at Herod this year-
We had a Fine Arts Fest!
We used a company called Fine Arts Fairs. They bring these really cool display racks. That was the initial main attraction, due to a lack of display space!




Our guitar classes played too!



A happy artist with his family!


Lots of hob- nobbing...the Herod art scene!






Kindergarten's project was inspired by the book, Rainbow Fish.




2nd Graders created oil pastel owls.



3rd Grade created delicious mixed media desserts inspired
by  artist Wayne Thiebaud!





4th Grade's inspiration was Van Gogh's Sunflowers.



1st Graders painted flowers and hands
 inspired by Pablo Picasso....



5th Grade's Ceramic Owls were on display.







The 5th Graders really did an amazing job!


The kids really got a kick out of seeing their art work framed.

Next year's Art Fest will be even more amazing!
