Visit to the DIA and the Parade Company (Art Club Students)

On March 15, 201 , Art Club students visted the DIA in the morning and the Parade Company in the afternoon. It was a full day of excitment. At the DIA, students visited many galleries. The students enjoyed looking at the works of many famous artists that they learned about in the art room.  At the Parade Company, students learned how to make the big head using 13 layers of papier mache, clay and wire base. Students made the connection with the papier mache masks that they are creating themselves in the Art Room.

Tanks to all the doscents at the DIA and the tour guides at the PArade Company for the informative tours that they offered to Miller students.

Thanks to all the chaperones who came with us that day to visit the DIA and the Parade Company. They did wonderful job keeping their eyes on the students in their group. I couldn’t have done it without their dedication, hard work, and commitment. The students will remember this day for ever.

Guest Artist visiting Miller School in January

Fourth and fifth graders enjoyed an introduction to the art of animation. Annette Frank, an artist and  former art educator showed the students her collection of flip books. The students were amazed by looking at different ones. Then, she showed them how to make one book by using index cards and light box to create their own book.

At the end, students chose 24 index cards to draw the subject of their animation moving in slow motion by drawing it using the light box on the consecutive numbered pages.

Once the students finish drawing, tracing and coloring their pages, they will staple the flip book they created.

Thanks to Ms. Frank, the students now know how these flip books were created.

The students thanked Ms. Annette Frank for visiting and sharing with students her knowledge about this subject.
