Art Class

Welcome to Art!
My name is Miss Kiedaisch, and I am looking forward to an exciting year of art with the first-eighth grade students at OLV!  Please check back for updates on what our artists are creating!

First Grade: Fall Leaves
We will be learning about pattern, warm and cool colors, and repetition!

Second and Third Grade: Kusama Pumpkins
Second and Third grade are learning about Yayoi Kusama, a contemporary artist.  We are creating mixed-media works of art inspired by her pumpkin sculptures.

Fourth Grade: Islamic Tile Printmaking
Fourth (and later fifth) grade will be learning about Islamic architecture, and will be using their geometric patterning as inspiration for a printmaking project.

Fifth and Sixth Grade: Superhero Self Portraits
Fifth and Sixth graders are continuing our focus on narrative art, and drawing themselves as superheroes!

Seventh Grade: Animal Prints
Seventh grade is learning about linoleum block printing, and will be creating their own animal "stamps" and prints.  They will be responsible for creating a series of five prints.

Eighth Grade: â€‹Restaurant Design
Eighth grade is learning about architecture and the design process. They will be practicing their two-point perspective drawing skills to create their own unique restaurants. 

For any 8th grade students interested in applying to honors art programs in high school, please see the link below for ideas for extra projects to build your portfolio.  See Miss Kiedaisch for more information if necessary!
