• CSMS Arts Festival 2017

    Posted by Kristine Blocker at 4/5/2017 4:00:00 PM

    This was our 3rd Annual Arts Festival. Mrs. Gallant did an outstanding job of coordinating our guests. We are always proud to host the Army MI Band and JCMS Jazz band. We enjoyed performances by our own amazing CSMS band. Mrs. Ortiz' Spanish class performed a very nice dance. Mr. Griffor's STEM class performed with instruments that they had made. We also had a lovely display of illustrations from Mrs. D'Anjou's Reading class and a cool display if microscope art from Mrs. Howell's class. Mrs. Ortiz also diplayed some poetry from her Spanish students and some of them included illustrations. We had our all school portrait mural. This year everyone drew themselves as their alter-ego. The PTO and Band parents also helped out.

    The Art teachers from all three schools collaborated and chose approximately 10 pieces of art work to display at the PX. This show is in celebration of Youth Art Month. The PX managers were so helpful and we really enjoyed celebrating our young artists with thier families.

    Drawing ribbons helps reinforce the use of value (shading) and composition.

  • 6th Grade pinch pots

    Posted by Kristine Blocker at 11/25/2016 3:00:00 PM

    We look at examples of animals in art history before we make our animal pinch pots. Students learn the procedures for pinching a pot and then add animal features. After the pots have been bisque fired in the kiln at approximately 1800 degrees they glaze them. I always love opening the kiln after their pots have been glaze fired. It's so fun to see all of their little treasures.

    Art club wanted to honor our service members this Veterans Day with a banner of patriotic free art. They made the banner and then added free art sticky notes made by 6th and 7th grade. It was hanging in the PX for Veterans Day weekend.

  • This year's Festival of Trees

    Posted by Kristine Blocker at 10/26/2016 5:00:00 PM

    Staff made ornaments for the Festival of Trees during our Thursday PD. It was such a great team building experience. Our ornaments will be donated to Student Council and they will donate the finished tree to the event at the Mall in Sierra Vista mid-November. All proceeds go to charity.
