HANC Loves Art!

Students at HANC’s Samuel & Elizabeth Bass Golding Elementary School, in West Hempstead, are excited about art! Art teacher Ann Koffsky introduced students to a variety of “artist masters.”

In kindergarten, the students discussed how different colors can suggest feelings and emotions, and they used colored chalk to create large fields of blended colors in the style of artist Mark Rothko. First-graders completed circle and square projects inspired by Wassily Kandinsky’s Color Study. The students in second grade created a beautiful art installation inspired by the glass sculpture of Dale Chihuly. Third-graders focused on the works of Piet Mondrian and emulated his signature style using Sharpies and colored tape. Using tape as a resist, the fourth-graders sponge-painted their own work in the style of Claude Monet. The students in fifth grade studied Georges Seurat’s detailed pointillist style and used it to pattern their own butterfly designs. Sixth-graders created their own pastel pieces as inspired by Marc Chagall’s famous piece “I and the Village.”

Thank you to I&D for their donation of materials to the art room. v
