Grade Whitten has been named "Artist of the Month" in the Holliston Public School system for January 2014. Grace Whitten is a Kindergarten student at the Sam Placentino Elementary School in Holliston.
This is how her teacher, Meridith Buono, describes Grace's project:
Grace's project is a study of the landscape in winter. We discussed the term landscape, and horizon line (the line that separates ground from sky).
After setting our scene, we learned about foreground and background. Objects that are drawn BIG and near the bottom are in the foreground, and items that are drawn small and near the horizon line are in the background.
Grace earned this honor because of her consistent effort and creativity in the art room.
