We are lucky enough to be working with an awesome student teacher in our Art classes. Reyna Wanamaker is from the University of Toledo and has been with us since the beginning of the year. She recently taught the third and fifth graders all about the art of Peter Max.
Max is a Pop Artist. Pop artists use themes from the popular culture of their time in their Art. Peter's use of black outlines and bright colors came from comic books. He was also inspired by planets, stars, and astronomy in general.
Here are some of the "cosmic" works of art the fifth graders created, inspired by Peter Max!
