Art in Our School

Do you ever just wander around your building and admire the bulletin boards?

That's what I did last week and was just blown away by some of the beautiful art I saw.

Have a look!

Art by primary students at Lakewood Elementary
The art above was all done by some primary classes. Believe or not, that pastel panda at the very top was drawn by a girl in Grade 1 !


Art by intermediate students at Lakewood Elementary

These were created by some intermediate students. 

I really like the bear and wolf. Old music was used for those.

And the perspective drawings at the bottom are very cool.



Ted Harrison style paintings by students at Lakewood Elementary

But these Ted Harrison-style paintings are my absolute favourites!  I have several Harrison prints in my home and I never get tired of the vibrant colours.

Sadly, Mr. Harrison died a month ago, here in Victoria.  He'll be missed but not forgotten.

    1. Thanks, Kelly:) There's always something extra special about a child's art.
      I could happily have it hanging all over my house!

  3. Those are great, Barb! Does everyone teach their own art or do you have an art teacher?

    1. Thanks, Crystal!

      We all do our own art ... no art teacher. But our province (and I believe it's the same across Canada) values Fine Arts in school so we're required to teach it and report on it.

  4. I think it's wonderful that you guys put so much emphasis on art. I just wrote a post (haven't published it yet) at how disappointed I was that we are talking about getting rid of our art specials. :( Many of our teachers don't do it in the classrooms-so the kids just don't get those experiences.

    1. Aw, that's really too bad. Art is so important. It's funny because I also have a draft post about the benefits of art. Keeping my fingers crossed that you don't lose your art specials!
