Be Prepared to Get Messy!

We're getting ready to paint at Cumberland. Please Bring a SMOCK, or OLD T-SHIRT in from home so that you don't ruin your clothes. We're planning a paint-filled year starting soon. Please be prepared.

Why Is Art Important?

All of the classes at Chippewa and Cumberland throughout the first week of school have been answering the question, "Why is ART important?

Good question with an infinite number of answers. Some of our solutions include:
     -It lets you express yourself
     -Everyone is different, and it shows in your art
     -It is all around us
     -It teaches us to use our creativity
     -A world without art is a world without color and shape
     -It expresses your feelings
     -It explains things
     -It helps you understand the world better
     -It makes me happy

I can't wait to see our combined efforts displayed on bulletin boards for all to ponder.

Welcome Back Cumberland Cougars

I'm getting ready to start school. After a trip to Cumberland yesterday, I was telling Mrs. Scheiber about how I've spent the summer painting almost every day. She mentioned that it would be nice to have a painting in the office. I thought it was a great idea, so I made this cougar to hang in the office for all to enjoy.

You can see more of my paintings that I have made here, or click on the side under my pages to see what I've been working on.

See you soon!

Proof That You Can Draw Anything and Make It Amazing!

Summer is winding down, and I've been busy painting ALOT! I've painted 36 paintings since the end of June! I will be sharing them with you soon.

Here is a fun video of an artist drawing the shadows he created when crumpling a paper. I love to watch artists work. I hope you do too!
