The halls of Michael A. Maroun Elementary School in Phoenix look like murals as student artwork was displayed during Friday’s Art Show.
The show featured art by kindergartners through fourth-graders.
Students took their families and friends through a self-guided tour of the school.
Third-graders, for instance, designed Japanese Koi fish using oil pastels and watercolor. They also created a winter snow scene that used visual art concepts of foreground and background.
Fourth-graders used value, or the element of shadow, to create silhouette trees.
Attendees enjoyed a slideshow in the cafeteria that featured students working on their projects, and were treated to ice-cream sponsored by the Parent Faculty Organization.
Author Dennis Pullen, who recently visited Maroun school, gave a live demonstration illustrating the way in which he mouth paints.
Pullen is a quadriplegic who uses a ventilator to breathe. He gave a presentation to students on disability awareness and how he’s overcome the obstacles in his path.
Pullen recently finished writing and illustrating his first book, “The Amazing Life of Mr. Pullen.”
