It’s Spooky Season at St. Al’s!

Many of our primary classes are doing spooky, Halloween-inspired projects.  Kindergarten made Jack o’lantern lanterns to learn how to turn a two-dimensional sheet of paper into a 3-D lantern, 1st grade and 1/2 MAC made spooky spiders in a web, 2nd grade made overlapping pastel pumpkins, and third and 3/4 combo made our classic St. Al’s project, “Avenue of Spooky Trees,” demonstrating use of a horizon line and a vanishing point (see photo).  4th grade will begin Zentangle positive and negative space jack o’lanterns, and even 7/8 art is getting in on the seasonal action with their “Day of the Dead” projects.  It’s feeling pretty creepy (but in a great way) around here!

Please join us for our outdoor Hallowfest, Friday, October 29th from 5-7 pm!  

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
