Stono Park hosts art show

On May 3rd, Stono Park Elementary held a “Watch Our Creativity Grow” Art Show impressing fellow students, parents, and community members. Mrs. Powell, the art teacher transformed the multipurpose room into a beautiful art gallery filled with students’ CD-5th grade art projects from the school year. First grade students were inspired by many different mosaic artists to create their own large paper mosaic mural. Students first learned about texture by creating their painted paper tiles and then worked collaboratively to put together this artwork. Stono Park scholars school-wide created clay projects displaying what they learned about form, 3D shapes, and textures. Scholars were excited to see how the glaze has a heat reaction when fired in the kiln and changes colors. The self-portraits were remarkable depictions of their self-image. The beautiful artwork was framed for purchase to fundraise for the Stono Park art program.
