Flintridge Prep Visual Arts Launches its Visual Arts News Highlighting What’s Going On in the Arts Classroom
Flintridge Preparatory School (FPS) Visual Arts launched its Visual Arts News recently, which highlights what’s going on in the arts classrooms. Its first installment spotlights the wildly imaginative charcoal drawings done by 8th graders in Ms. Goo’s art class last semester. Inspired by “The Mysteries of Harris Burdick” by Chris Van Allsburg, students played with layering, blending, and light, as well as enigmatic captions, for a project called The Mysteries of an 8th Grader.
“At first glance, all may seem normal,” says Ms. Goo. “But upon a closer look, the mundane becomes magical: A puzzling element or twist can be seen. Outside of the caption, it’s up to the viewer to interpret the imagery and make up their own stories.”
