Here is an update on what we have been doing in art class! Art classes grades K-2 are participating in the 2019 Earth Day poster contest presented by the Clinton County Solid Waste Management District. All posters must represent one of the following themes: recycling or litter prevention. There will be one winner chosen from each classroom and those winners will compete with classroom winners from other schools in Clinton County. County winners will receive various recycled-content prizes and will have their posters published in the SWMD Earth Day Calendar. Good luck to our Holmes Elementary artists!

We’re celebrating the season of winter in the art room. Kindergarten students used collage techniques to create a fun snowman. First grade students will be exploring Cincinnati fine artist Charley Harper’s animal paintings. Then they will create a wintery cardinal scene using cut paper/collage. The winter theme continues as the second grade students will be painting polar bears with furry textures!
