SOAR with Art: Riverside Art Show

January 22, 2014

  01/23/14 This year at Riverside Intermediate School in Plymouth a group of sixth grade students from the Comets and Stars teams spent the second nine weeks of SOAR in the Art room. This new class, SOAR with Art, is designed for those students who are not in band or choir as an extra art enrichment. Students discovered new artists, discussed contemporary art, and developed their own individual projects. 

Each student chose a topic, designed a project, and completed the piece in time for an end of the nine weeks gallery display. The subject of the artwork was completely up to the student and ranged from endangered animals to roller coasters. One student photographed everyday objects and created a collage in Photoshop while

  another built a pick-up truck and trailer out of Legos.

  Some used paint and colored pencil, others clay and cardboard, while a few produced their work digitally. One student, inspired by contemporary artist Tara Donovan, constructed an entire owl using hundreds of painted pins, twine, and foam. 

  The students’ work will be on display in the Riverside foyer until January 30, along with their artist statements. Come check out the amazing work of these great new artists!
