During the month of April over 100 pieces of art made by AnnMarie Rudstrom’s Kindergarten students from Soldotna Elementary are on display at Kaladi Brother’s Coffee on Kobuk Ave. in Soldotna, Alaska.
Throughout the school year, Mrs. Rudstrom selected art projects that allowed students to explore various mediums to gain an understanding of the many unique ways art can be created. Most often the projects were connected to units they were studying or seasons of the year. Mrs. Rudstrom believes all children are artists and with the right opportunities and guidance they can create beautiful and meaningful art. Students learned about art concepts such as primary and secondary colors, abstract versus realistic art, titling art to capture the main idea, and how line and color help to create a mood.
On Friday, April 8, 2022, these students took a field trip to the coffee shop to enjoy steamers and to admire their work on display. Students were clearly proud to show off their work to family members and chaperones. This class has received many compliments and encouragement for their beautiful pieces. Be sure to stop by and see it for yourself!
