All Saints Episcopal Day School is a diverse community committed to academic excellence and social responsibility for students from Nursery to Grade 8. We are pleased to extend the standard application deadline to January 25, 2021.
As students progress through All Saints their knowledge of and skill in portraiture art expand. Beginning in Kindergarten, students study the Cubist style, learning about the work of Picasso and use basic shapes to create faces. One year later, as First Graders, they learn proportion and create more realistic self-portraits inspired by Illuminations and the contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley.
Faces are expressive and, in Second Grade, students create portraits of themselves using facial features to show feelings, in the vein of Kaethe Kollwitz, Edvard Munch, and Judy Chicago. Sculptural faces are explored in Third Grade when students build armatures and model magic Shakespeare characters in honor of their Bard Bash. The gain inspiration from sculptures by Artis Lane, Duane Hansen, and George Segal.
Fourth Grade students are introduced to several new artists, including Yayoi Kusama, Frida Kahlo, and Tawny Chatmon, and their unique styles. This year begins more independent research into artists and exploring greater detail and symbolism in the artists’ work – and the students may choose to work in a style that best suits their personality. The work of all our student artist are on display throughout the year – this year, during several virtual events!
