Throughout the year, I select works for both Forwood's Blue Fox Art Exhibit and the Young Brandywine Artist Exhibit (YBAE) so that your child may see his/her work on the walls of our important events.
Forwood's First Annual Blue Fox Art Exhibit was a great success! It is my goal to display all student work throughout the building for the exhibit. I display works in our halls throughout the year as well to promote the arts and show off the talented young minds here at Forwood. To ensure this happens, please make sure you sign and return the consent to display form at the beginning of the year. For more information and students' artwork please visit the Blue Fox Art Exhibit on the left.
This year my classes will be participating in our year long Art Movements and the Artists that move them curriculum. First, we will learn about such artist as Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Joan Miro, and Piet Mondrian during the first two months of the year. Then, we will move on to the Renaissance in November and discuss Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti. Yes, Michelangelo had a last name! Next, we will discuss such artists as Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, and Edward Degas during our Impressionist Movement in December and January. Later, we move onto Post Impressionist artists like Vincent van Gogh, and Georges Seurat during February. After February, students will discuss Henri Mattisse, Marc Chagall, and Franz Marc and learn how our school art show got it's name! Finally, during April and May, your child will learn about Pablo Picasso and Georgia O'Keefe and their major contributions to art. The lessons here at Forwood follow our National and Delaware Standards in Art Education giving your child an in depth and enriching art experience.
