Edison Elementary: Artist in Residence Program (Ocean Week Silk Painting)

Spring Term 2017 Treetop Academics will present an ‘Artist in Residence’ program for all Edison student K-5.  This is a 12-week, in school program, with six sessions per classroom. The theme for this ‘In Residence’ Program will be Silk Painting and the art projects will be two-fold.

First, students will create their own silk painting artwork to both adorn their classroom and to take home. Second, each student will also participate in creating multiple 6′ silk banners for their classroom tailor-made for their ocean week habitat. Each classroom’s banners and individual projects will correspond to the classroom Ocean Week curriculum. Specifically, Kinders will be studying ponds, 1st grade: Rocky Seashore, 2nd: Sandy beach, 3rd Grade: Wetlands, 4th Grade: Kelp forest, and 5th Grade: Open Oceans. Kinders will get the opportunity to work with their 5th grade buddies for the duration of this program.
