Art classes at HACA are in full swing! Students attend weekly class and will focus on knowing and using the Elements of Art this year.

So far, we have completed projects using line and color.

Our halls are filling up with creativity!


November Art

What’s new in ART for November.

Students in all classes have been working on autumn themed projects. Our Arts Center Gallery is filled with the rich colors and images of autumn.

Our littlest artists worked hard on choosing a wide variety of appropriate colors to create vibrant autumn leaves with watercolor crayons and markers.

Grades 1 and 2 created fabulous black crows, using collage technique on painted paper. Grade 2 also made Thanksgiving Turkeys using watercolor crayons and paper shapes.

Oil pastel pumpkins were created by grades 3, 4 and 5. The brilliant oranges, golds and browns are beautifully blended and look dazzling. 

Grades 6, 7 and 8 completed “Texture Reliefs” using organic and woven materials overlaid with foil, sprayed black and then burnished to a lustrous patina.

During the month of November our future projects will focus on the winter season and its holidays.











October Art!

The fall season brings lots of inspiration to our young artists.


Grades Five to Eight are working on fall/Halloween themed tempera paintings to submit to the Bay Ridge community council art and poster contest.


Second grade ghosts created with oil and chalk pastels.


Third and Fourth Graders created autumn leaf paintings using a water color resist technique… with a sprinkle of salt.






September Art!
