Student Artist Spotlight

The April theme for DoDEA's Artist Spotlight is "WATER".  Some students made crayon resists using crayons, water, and tempera paint cakes.  Others made their resists into paper batiks, by crumpling their work, dipping in water, then painting with tempera. 

If you check the DoDEA webpage "Artist Spotlight", you will see all the upcoming themes and rules for entering your child's artwork. You may enter your child's artwork even in the Summer, as there are themes for each month! 

Please go to the DoDEA Artist Spotlight page on Facebook and vote for your favorite FRES student artwork.  The eight entries from our school are pictured below.
