Still Life

Wednesday was the last class for the Spring program on “Still Life” at the studio. One of the project was a mixed media still life inspired by a fresh flower bouquet from the garden. Students were very engaged and enjoyed this program. So did I, beautiful atmosphere in the studio.

Nicho

Grades 4, 5 and 6 created a nicho as part of the “South America” art program at Kanata Montessori School
This small built in shadow box is used during the celebration of the Day of the Dead, a popular holiday in Latin American countries. It celebrates the lives of people who have died. The Day of the Dead is not a sad or depressing time, but a time of happiness and celebration.
