Students experiment with art forms

Seton is very fortunate to have an excellent artist and teacher at the head of the classroom and art department. When thinking what part of Seton the school would want to share with others, Linda Tuller and her teaching of art came to mind. 

Tuller teaches art on Monday and Tuesday. Each class receives a half hour of instruction.

Throughout the year, the students’ artwork is on display at the Area Education Agency and at the local art show in the spring at Quincy Place Mall.

Each year the projects in art build upon the previous year’s skills.  Starting  in kindergarten, students will experience various types of drawing, painting, collages, printmaking and 2D and 3D clay projects, along with some seasonal grade-level work. 


Achieving skill refinement in these areas is rewarding to the student and teacher.

The kindergarten class has been designing and decorating snow ovals. First-graders are enjoying a clay unit and making snowmen and a sun stone.

Second-graders are busy making totem poles, relief paintings and chalk drawings. The third-graders are doing stick printing, scratch papers drawing and president heads.

Fourth-graders have been working on tempra batiks and Styrofoam printing.

The fifth-grade class has been doing some contour drawing, cardboard glue reliefs and printmaking.

Sixth-graders are finishing up some feather prints and are now designing their own personal clay stamp to be used when making a clay vase later.
