We've moved! The art studio is now located in Room 103, next to the office. Our new home is bright, beautiful and spacious, and the students are filling it with creative ideas already.
Thanks to an amazing residency with BCA Artist Rebecca Schwarz, last year's graduating 5th grade students created a vibrant new sign for our school. During the last month of art class, students experienced the design process for this public work of art; they discussed what they would like the world to know about our school, they brainstormed words that share how we learn at IAA, they made thumbnail sketches to share their ideas, and finally they combined multiple ideas into one school sign. They then worked with Rebecca to cut pieces of glass and lay them out on their design, transforming their image into a mosaic.
