Students were asked to design and color Aztec sunstones that were built on three design principles; balance, patterns, and contrast.  The artist in the picture below is Hederlyn Olivares a 5th grade student. Hederlyn used vibrant colors and interesting patterns that show examples of contrast and balance. This sunstone will be entered in the Bronx Borough Art Festival so that it may get the opportunity to be seen and enjoyed by many people.

 Hederlyn's  masterpiece is in the running to be displayed at the Bronx Borough Art Festival.

James Rizzi is a dynamic artist who lived in New York City.  His artwork is very animated, full of detail and expression. Since the 2nd grade students are learning all about New York City as part of their Social Studies Unit I thought it would be appropriate to introduce students to James Rizzi's illustrations. Students were asked to create their version of James Rizzi’s artwork. The artist in this picture below is Martin, a 2nd grade student. Martin used colors, shapes, and lines to create a dynamic and vibrant representation of both New York City and James Rizzi’s artwork. Martin's piece will be featured on The Beacon (The Bronx School District 10's Newsletter).

 Martin's New York City landscape comes alive through vibrant colors and the use of facial features such as eyes and mouths on buildings, clouds, and even the sun.
