Volunteers Needed for Artist In Residence!

Volunteer to assist our students and learn the art of the collage yourself.  Our Artist In Residence program begins on 2/20 and runs through 3/23. Each classroom will spend two sessions with local Artist Sarah Ferguson to learn the techniques of painted paper and collaging.  It's fun and easy to volunteer and a great way to work with our students as they learn about art. This year we are tying the theme of the art to a PYP learning practice so the experience comes full circle within the students curriculum.

Our artist is looking for 2 - 3 volunteers per each classroom session to help with getting the students to and from the artists workshop and to move through the lesson. For more information and to sign up to help visit: http://signup.com/go/YwjJOSH

"Making Connections" with Artist in Residence Sarah Ferguson

The 2017-2018 Artist In Residence is Sarah Ferguson and the program will run from February 20th – March 23rd.  Sarah will be teaching painted paper techniques and the art form of constructing collages. These processes and the resulting art will come together to create a mural which will be permanently showcased in the front entrance of the school.

Please join us as an artist volunteer and help guide your student’s classroom as they participate in the art lessons and work with Sarah.  Volunteer signup can be found here: http://signup.com/login/entry/107097078033

AIR K-4 2.jpg

Sarah will work one-on-one with the students to bring this years school theme ‘Making Connections’ to life through her art lessons and hands on student art sessions. K-4 will work with Sarah during two artist sessions to learn the process and to create their own individual pieces to be brought home.  The 5th grade classes will be taken through a journey of brainstorming the mural concept, creating individual art, and reflecting on the process of creation including a dedication ceremony during a school assembly. Art sessions last from 60 mins to 75 mins and all materials will be provided.

BSE is very excited to have Sarah lead our students through this artistic endeavor and we so appreciate the support and passion from all of you for the arts. Be a part of the experience and signup to be an artist volunteer at: http://signup.com/login/entry/107097078033

Have Fun Teaching Art Literacy at BSE!

artlit1.jpg

This year’s Art Lit Leadership team is ready to dive into another exciting year.  Art Literacy is an art education program sponsored by the Beaverton School District, funded by BSCO and run by parent volunteers. Every year, we teach six art lessons to each classroom. 

Each lesson focuses on a specific historical artist; we review his or her biography, look at examples of their art, and then lead a hands-on art project that is inspired by the featured artist.  This year’s artists include Faith Ringgold, Peter Carl Faberge, Jacques-Louis David, Joan Miro, Henri Rousseau & the culture of India

Parent volunteers can either attend a hands-on training and lead the lesson, or simply assist students with the project on the day of the lesson.  Either is a gratifying, fun-filled experience that allows parents to interact with their child’s classroom and requires no previous art experience.

Shuhe Hawkins Joins Bonny Slope as Artist in Residence

Bonny Slope Community Organization has invited Shuhe Hawkins to lead our 2017 Artist in Residence program.  During the program students will be creating masks which will develop skills in basic sculpting, process oriented learning, objective observation, and hand-eye coordination.

We need parent volunteers to help Shuhe in the classroom starting Monday, March 6.    Shuhe is meeting with each class, grades 1 thru 5, on 4 separate days.  Kindergarten will be 2 days.  Each classroom session is 1 hour.

Bio - Shuhe Hawkins has been a professional mask maker & performer since 1998 & has worked with many local theaters including Tears of Joy, NWCT, OCT & many civic arts organizations. He has taught thousands of students all around the western US & has developed a unique residency which incorporates the basics of sculpting, eye to hand coordination & fundamental stage skills.

Shuhe believes in challenging every student's mind through both their intellect & creativity, in a process that requires a structured approach & also allows for individual interpretation. His main goals are to encourage young people to truly observe what they see by incorporating both shape & color into their mask creation, & to increase self-confidence by succeeding at a “tricky” project & through public performance. His favorite part of teaching is the process of discovery for both the kids & himself.

"Shuhe gave individual attention to each child. He kept students focused and productive, and all were successful." --3rd grade teacher, PPS

Art Literacy Needs Your Old Magazines and Catalogues

Looking to get rid of of old magazines or catalogues?  WE NEED THEM.  We will be using pictures from magazines & catalogues in our next Art Literacy Project featuring Salvador Dali.  

Our plan is to pull out the pages that will work with the production, so while we want to keep it clean, please do not be too concerned if there is a "questionable" ad or other picture in the magazine.  We will not be using those questionable images as we will be editing before the kiddos get them.  

There will be a box in the Office to put magazine donations OR if you have a lot, feel free to contact us and we can pick them up.  Just contact us at: artliteracy@bonnyslopebsco.org.

Art Literacy Welcomes Korean Art Fellow

Each year, the Art Literacy program includes the study of a particular culture.  This year, Bonny Slope focused on Korea and the Art Lit team collaborated with BSE’s incredible art teacher, Ms. Gillard, to create a unique week long experience.

Ms. Gillard invited Ga-Yeon Go, a fellow at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum at the University of Oregon, to assist with the lessons during the week of April 18th.  Ga-Yeon is an exchange student from Korea and shared with students about her life in Korea, different traditional Korean foods, the lunar calendar and Korean zodiac animal signs.

During the week, kindergarten, first and second grade students created traditional Korean kites.  Ga-Yeon explained, how in the past, before cell phones, Korean soldiers used kites to communicate during battles.  The students used bamboo sticks, paper & crepe paper to construct & decorate their own kites.  Although the kites made were purely decorative, the students had a great time "flying" their kites during an impromptu dance party!

The third, fourth and fifth grade students learned to write Korean characters on rice paper with bamboo brushes and india ink.  Everyone had a great time choosing from a seven page list of proverbs.   Each proverb was written in English and Korean for the students to copy.  Some of the popular choices were:  "A friend in need is a friend indeed,” "Love me love my dog", and "United we stand, divided we fall."  There was much discussion while working about what the proverbs meant and how they reflected their own experiences.  

Ga-Yeon also helped students write their names in Korean - she was VERY busy!  Some of the students already knew how to write in Korean and helped Ga-Yeon with writing their classmates names. 

In addition to Ga-Yeon, special thanks to Ms. Gillard for all her work to make this experience happen for our students.  She went above and beyond to arrange this and include it in her lesson plans for the week.  Finally, a BIG thank you to our host families, Sara Gillette and Haideh Go, for hosting Ga-Yeon during her stay.  Ga-Yeon really enjoyed the time she spent with your families. 

Funding for this and all art lit supplies during the year are provided by BSCO’s Art Lit budget and your generous BSCO donation.
