3rd, 4th and 5th grade looked at the work of Wassily Kandinsky and created compositions using overlapping geometric shapes.  They painted them with tempera cakes and used a third color in the shapes that were made by the overlapping. This project gave students opportunity for drawing, paint application and color theory.  Great job Pride artists, your compositions would make Kandinsky proud!  ART SMART words: geometric shape, overlap, composition and technique.

About Me

Michelle "Meche" Farah; I have a BFA in Painting and Illustration and Art History Minor from The Savannah College of Art and Design. Before I discovered a love to teach, I worked in interior design, and film production. My teaching certification is from Jacksonville University. This is my 13th year as a teacher and 4th year at Fort Caroline Middle. I teach Art History and sculpture. I am a professional decorative painting artist and a former board member of NeFAEA- Northeast Florida Art Educators Association. I am an active FAEA- Florida Art Education member and attend state conference every year. I have also attended nationals conference several times. My FAVORITE project is "Recycle-Transformation" which simply means going green and making old items new and appreciated. Our FUTURE is in our hands, I include recycled materials in student projects. In my art program students practice the disciplines of art history, art production, art aesthetics, and art criticism. It is not only important to make and learn about art but how to discuss it and bring value and meaning to it. Thanks for viewing our art blog, we are glad you stopped by!
