• Beautiful Hands

    Warwick Elementary School has been inspired by Kathryn Otoshi’s book Beautiful Hands. To welcome the talented author, each grade has created different images out of their own hands to support the positive meaning behind this book.


    What can your beautiful hands do today?

    The artists focused on the process of creating art, while using materials carefully and respectfully. They also thought abstractly as they created images out of prints of their own hands.

  • Rockin' Around the Color Wheel!

    5th Grade students created AWESOME color wheels and turned them into Rockin' Guitars! Not only are these color wheels an example of Color Theory, but they are also a complex version of the average color wheel.  These color wheels consist of 12 different Hues, Tints and Shades of each color! They also practiced the element of Value in the Guitar strip!

    The project inspired students to think about designers and how they can use color differently. It also was a great way to explore the color wheel and how different colors work together (Color Theory).

  • Happy International DOT Day!

    Hello Artists! The First graders of Barclay and Warwick elementary celebrated International DOT Day! The students created their own individual dot, after hearing the story of Vishta. Vishta was a student, just like our CB friends, who didn't see herself as an artist. When it became quite simple "Make a mark, and see where it takes you", Vishta tried. After realizing making a mark can mean a simple dot, she created one! Then another, then another! Vishta became so talented and creative with all these different dots! Which inspired this project.

    The students drew the circle shape, and filled their dot. Check it out!

    Here is the rubric I will use (along with the rest of the district) for your students art projects. It is a little different this year, therefore I am making it completely accessible and descriptive.
