Students in Mrs. Nyhan’s 8th grade art classes have had the incredible opportunity of working with LittleBits technology to create animated kinetic sculptures. The art department received a grant from the Concord Trust last spring to purchase LittleBits STEAM kits for all art students to use. LittleBits are circuitry bricks that can be connected to animate and bring sculpture and inventive prototypes to the next level. Students had the opportunity to build on being effective collaborators and creative producers though this process. Mrs. Kashi’s and Mrs. Bednaz’s classes will be also using these in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
Happy Thanksgiving wishes from RMS Artists! Enjoy these beautiful placemats created for Concord Hospital.
The Rundlett Middle School art department would like to thank all their first quarter art students for their hard work and perseverance! It was a busy first quarter with each grade completing three major summative assignments – drawings, paintings and a clay sculptures. Please be sure to ask your students about their work – most of them should have found their way home. You can always see fine examples of our students amazing art abilities in the halls of Rundlett. We look forward to continuing our art making with quarter two Rundett artists!
Students have been diligently finishing their technical drawings. In Mrs. Bednaz’s class, students are drawing skulls and creating a range of values using pastels. Meanwhile, in Mrs. Nyhan, students have been drawing ears of corn using watercolor to create value. And finally in Mrs. Kashi’s class students have been drawing shells and using pastels to create value. All were inspired by the works of Georgia O’Keeffe.
We are so excited to finally have this page launched. This has been a vision of ours for some time. Our goal is to keep you all posted on what’s going on at Rundlett Middle School from week to week. Don’t forget to check the calendar frequently, we will keep all events related to us in the art department on the calendar, this should help with NJAHS students in particular.
