Artist Series

The Artist Series is a school-wide collaboration. Throughout the school year, teachers introduce various artists and mediums: Vincent van Gogh; bold tempura paints; Paul Klee; watercolors; Seurat; and pointillism. Children have opportunities to make observations after viewing copies of each of the artist’s paintings. Teachers and children discuss color, style, texture and technique. We share facts about each artist and experiment with painting styles. The children create their own paintings using a variety of techniques. Take a look at the Step Ahead hallways filled with colorful paintings!
