Today the students enjoyed their first Art’s Alive lesson! Mr. Quidley treated them to an up-close and personal viewing of a beautiful painting done by Mr. Stephen Hannock. Mr. Quidley taught the children that Mr. Hannock is famous for his landscapes which often include stories about his family, friends or daily life. He creates his work by applying numerous layers of paint and then polishing it with sandpaper to create a special luminosity. Mr. Quidley also taught the children that Stephen Hannock uses symmetry in his artwork and showed the children how they could include it in their own masterpieces. A great time was had by all! Thanks very much, Mr. Quidley!
