Art Day 2020

Art Day 2020

Last Friday, we participated in a summer Art Day!

Usually, we host our Art Day in February, but due to many other schedule changes, we decided to enjoy the outdoors and get creative with lots of color!

After painting our uchiwas (a sneak peek into what we will be using for our matsuri!), we used body paint on one another and washed ourselves off (partly) with water balloons.

It was a great opportunity to get crazy and have fun together despite the hot weather and social distancing!

Hello, World!

Hello, World!

Families were given a guide to help them travel the “world”

Thank you to everyone who came to look at the final product of all our crafting at International Language House!

ILH’s 2020 Art Show’s theme this year was in honor of the Olympics. Since Japan is the host this year, we wanted to make an art show to celebrate the world through art!

Here’s a look into how the day went:

Our floor transformed into a world map, filled with colors and flags. We had chosen six different cultural icons to make and divided them up between our three classes. It went like this:

  • Mercuries made The Arc de Triomphe from France, as well as Christ the Redeemer from Brazil.
  • Saturns made Matryoshka dolls from Russia, as well as a pyramid from Egypt.
  • Jupiters made Niagara Falls from Canada, as well as Tokyo Skytree from JAPAN!

In a separate room, our kids and their parents made 2020 Olympic Ring glasses out of pipe cleaners. They all looked so cool!

What was your favorite part about Art Day?

Hello, World! Can you guess what our theme for Art Show is this year? Here’s a hint: these are some more ways we used all our collected cardboard at Language House:

Have an idea yet?

How about now?

It’s tricky to tell from the beginning stages, isn’t it? Each class has had two specific projects they have been focusing on, as well as some things everyone has been working on to piece everything together.

Art Day will be this coming Saturday from 10:00am. We are excited to see what you think on Saturday! In the meantime, enjoy our cryptic progress pictures….
