sonata_in_public_schoolBy Mr. Kolber in 6th Grade

The 6th grade students and art club members had a special guest in class the last week of school before the winter break. Ceramic Muralist Sonata Kazimieraitiene gave a lecture on public art and it’s place in our culture, as well as a workshop on creating with plastic clay in classes. The two PowerPoint presentations: Public Art in Chicago & Sonata’s Public Art are available by clicking the links here or on the resources page above. Students will be using the skills learned in the workshop to start creating a ceramic mural that will be placed outside the Main Office at Springman. Thanks to the PTA for their support in bringing Mrs. Kazimieraitiene to the art room as well as in helping to prepare the clay.
