This year's Beautifully Made Art Show and Auction was a huge success! What an amazing way to honor our student's work! And thank you to Margaret Owen for allowing us to showcase your "Oranges and Limes".
Diligently working away, sixth graders spent an entire day dedicated to art. With a Margaret Owen piece to paint, metallic free form leaves for the school wide tree auction piece, a teapot they drew in pastels and then water colored and ending with story stones that will be auctioned off, these students enjoyed creating all day long. The results are magnificent.
It's that time of the year again. Placer Academy is elbow deep in paint, clay and paper mache. Students across all grade levels have had the opportunity to learn about Margaret Owen's Oranges and Limes as well as recreate their own version of this piece. They have also spent time with docents learning various elements of art and producing pieces that will be showcased at the art show. Some of the art will be auctioned off, while other pieces will return home with the students at the end of the show. There will also be many different items auctioned off to support the arts program- including a weekend in Tahoe, Giants tickets, art classes, jewelry, and items created by makers from around the area. We encourage everyone to join us!
What an amazing turn out we had for our Margaret Owen art contest! Six of our Placer Academy artists were selected to create our Beautifully Made Art Show and Auction thank you cards. Each of the six winners will get their own set of cards. All art entries are on display in the school front hallway and will be exhibited at our Art Show and Auction in April. Please stop by and see how talented these students are!
