*TINY ART SHOW- You may have seen some intriguing brown paper put up around some of the areas around the Art room. Have you wondered what was up? Coming soon to a venue near you—Mrs. Paschall’s 4th grade Art classes have been making tiny artworks for a Tiny Art Show. Mrs. Paschall introduced them to an artist in Salt Lake City, Utah, McKay Lenker Bayer, who was creating tiny artworks and placing them around the city and in museums and galleries. People would come by and get right down on the ground to see her tiny works, using a magnifying glass to view the artworks and explanations next to them. After learning about Tiny Art Show, the 4th graders learned what a venue is (a place where an event happens), what a curator does (organizes an exhibit) and how galleries are set up. Each class chose a venue, and each student got to curate their own work. They are putting their galleries together, mounting their tiny artworks, and even creating the stands that the sculptures sit on, called plinths. Be on the lookout for the Tiny Art Shows! Not only have Mrs. Paschall’s 4th graders created a Tiny Art Show, but we have had a couple of Artists send a Pop-up Show all the way from New York City! Stepphan Stover and Sarah Spivey have sent a special venue just for RNE. Stop by the media center to take a look!
