Museum Hosts After-School Art Program
Students from sixth and seventh grade classes at PS/MS 105 in Arverne recently explored various media, including charcoal, chalk, pastels, watercolors and plaster-wrapped sculpture as part of an after-school program sponsored by the Rockaway Museum and taught by art teacher Norma Allende.
After having their pictures taken, students used the "grid system" to enlarge them and worked with chalk pastels. They also did upside-down drawing, often called "drawing with the right side of the brain."
The work in this page is representative of that done by the students in the after-school program.
