FINE ARTS PROGRAM IN OUR LIBRARY'S AREA SCHOOLS
With Lori Haas, Director

The Fine Arts program was at Hillman Elementary with 3rd, 4th and 5th graders on March 22nd. The students got a set of sketch pencils, with an eraser and sharpener and learned how to use each pencil, how to draw and shade with them. Together we drew and shaded an apple. Most of the students had never used sketch pencils before. Their drawings are absolutely amazing for beginners.




The Fine Arts Program was at Lewiston Elementary School today, March 17th, with 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Students made these fish paintings with watercolor pencils and liquid watercolor. We started drawing a perch but then they they got to decide if they would like to keep it a perch or change up the colors. I think they did a fabulous job.


The Fine Arts Program was at Hillman Elementary School today, March 15th, with third, fourth and fifth graders. Students learned several different watercolor techniques and then painted a birch tree landscape. Once again their artwork is amazing.

The Fine Arts program was at Hillman Elementary Schools with 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders on March 3rd. They learned how to use oil pastels and drew a snowy campfire scene in their sketchbooks. Every student got to keep their set of oil pastels thanks in part to a Hope Grant from the Michigan Humanities Council for the Arts
