ASJM Heart Art

Academy of St. James Art classes focus has been on Black History during the month of February. In grades kindergarten through grade 8, students have learned about Alma Mae Thomas, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Bernard Hoyes, Faith Ringgold, Romare Bearden, Lois Mailou Jones, and several more. The students have learned to draw portraits of Martin Luther King Jr. and Harriet Tubman.

Pop Art/Contemporary Art was also introduced by studying artists Romero Britto and Jim Dine. You can see some of the student’s interpretation of Jim Dine hearts hanging in the back of the church.
