MERRILLVILLE | The third and fourth grade students have an additional opportunity to show off their flare for art with the new Fieler Fauves Art Club.

Fieler Elementary School art teacher Mrs. Rachel Gray, started the Fieler Fauves for students to learn even more about art than they already do in their weekly art class. The Fieler Fauves was created to positively impact the lives of students through the creation of art.

Giving the students the ability for self-expression and hands on education provides creative stimulation and personal growth. The Fauves were a famous group of painters that were known for their strong use of color. The most famous Fauve was Henri Matisse. Mrs. Gray meets with this group once a week after school.

Students love creating and constructing three-dimensional works of art. Sculpture has been part of the world’s culture for centuries. The first project- Paper machè animal heads focuses on constructing forms using newspaper, masking tape, and paper machè. The students had to visualize how an animal looks and proportionately form the newspaper to look like their inspiration. This sculpture will then be painted with their favorite neon colors.
