LMS students were introduced to ancient Egypt through a spectacular, larger than life, photographic art exhibit. All middle school students and staff have been enjoying the spectacular five piece exhibit this week, February 22nd-26th.  

The two-dimensional exhibit features large, photographic panels that consist of tomb treasures, the rules of figure drawing, symbols, and the defining Kingdoms as well as some student art inspired by Egyptian content.
Art Specialists, Mrs. Susa, Mrs. Boxler, along with classroom social studies teachers, recently began their exciting journey into the study of Ancient Egypt. Sixth grade students are exploring social structures, religions, technologies, agricultural practices, and the cultural traditions of this early civilization for the month of February. 
During art classes students will compare and contrast visual art forms of expression found throughout the Egyptian tombs by exploring the Great pyramids, discovering the visual language of Hieroglyphics and discussing how aspects of culture influence ritual and social artworks. The goal of bringing in this exhibit is to support and enhance student learning while connecting knowledge from both subject areas using ART as a catalyst! 
We welcome community members to explore the exhibit TONIGHT after school from 3pm to 5:30 pm, just enter door number seven. Check your social media for more upcoming information and events.
