Recent Projects

Fifth Grade Agamographs
These works were inspired by Yaacov Agam, a world-renowned kinetic artist. Agam pioneered a new form of art that contemplates progress, time, and the role of the viewer. Agam has become one of the most influential modern artists since his first solo exhibition in 1953. He encourages viewers to reflect on artistic creation and the spiritual values of society through transformative art. His works are collected worldwide and he has participated in major museum exhibitions all over the world. https://www.parkwestgallery.com/artist/yaacov-agam/

North Hill Art Room Schedule

Please make sure that your student is dressed appropriately for the art room! While all materials are washable and students wear paint shirts, accidents can happen and some stains may occur. For stains, I recommend applying stain remover or detergent directly on the stain for 5 to 10 minutes. Wash the garment and repeat until the stain is completely removed, and then stick it in the dryer.
