April Showers Bring May Flowers…
and for the Art Docents we have the …
Kindergarten Foil Workshop
Spanish Art History
French Art History
The year is winding up and we have finished with all of our print presentations.
During April, May and June we have several important items to cover with the Art Docents.
The Art Show is one of our large components of the Art Docent program and we have been working hard to get it ready.
Thanks to Frances and her awesome committee on all the hard work they have put in thus far.
The following lessons/workshops are ready to be taught these last few months.
KINDERGARTEN FOIL WORKSHOP
Students will learn about sculptures, 3 dimensional objects, and materials used in sculptures by creating their own foil sculpture animal.
Explanation of Concept:
Sculpture has shape (height, width and depth), it is not flat, and is three dimensional.
Sculpture is not just art. It can be created to be part of a celebration, a dance, a show or part of a building.
Sculpture can be functional.
Sculpture can be made of any material.
SPANISH ART HISTORY – 7th Grade
Does it feel somber or light-hearted?
LOGO SUBMISSION UPDATE
out to the Los Gatos High School students as you all know last month
to give them the students the first opportunity to send in submissions
for a new logo going forward for our 45th Anniversary.
We received over 25 submissions!
Thank you to Sue W., Stephanie D., Cheryl H., Elizabeth G.,
Beth R. and Stefanie J.
for you help in working on the committee for screening the logo submissions
and presenting their top 2 choices to our Executive Board.
Also a big thank you goes to
Mr. Czech, the Los Gatos High School Art teacher
who was instrumental in working with both our Logo Committee
and the students on their submissions!
or continue on with our current logo.
Friday, April 27th, 9 am at the Art Show Set Up
held at Fisher Middle School.
We are not revealing the choice in public yet since we have not notified the students
yet of our decisions since we will be waiting to complete the vote
from all the Art Docents at our next meeting.
Thank you Jr. Art Docents!
Prints Update Project – Part One
Over the Spring Break we asked if any of the Jr. Art Docents could join us at the
Art Docent office to help out with our “Prints Update Project”.
Lucky for us…we had an awesome team of 4 Los Gatos High School students who joined us
along with Theresa B., Judith F., Julie F., and Emilie R.
Together we divided into teams, and in 3 hours we measured, cataloged,
and rated over 150 prints. This is the first step in making sure that our
amazing Print Collection is kept up to date and looking great for the classroom use.
We will be meeting again to work on “Part Two”
on May 23rd @ 9 am in the Art Docent office
if anyone is interested in join in on the fun, please email either Stefanie at firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie F.
It’s time to Spring into Action!
Happy Spring, Julie Ferrario
President of Art Docents of Los Gatos
