CLARK, NJ – The work of famous artists are inspiring third graders in Ms. Krick’s class at Valley Road School. 

According to school staff, each month students learn facts about an artist’s and their work.  This information is incorporated in the curriculum across various subject areas such as grammar, math and language arts.  

In one lesson, Picasso’s cubist work helped students understand three dimensional shapes in math, and Norman Rockwell’s “Rosie the Riveter” and paintings of soldiers were a perfect fit for Veteran’s Day in November.

Most recently, the class learned about Andy Warhol and his contributions to Pop Art.  As a culminating activity, they enlisted the help of the other third grade classes to create an Andy Warhol display in the foyer at Valley Road School.

 Inspired by Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, each third grader created a version of a Campbell’s soup label with varieties ranging from Gingerbread Soup to Watermelon Soup.  

The labels are assembled in a mural entitled “VRS is a Souper School.”  An array of real cans of Campbell’s soup, donated by third grade families, completed the display.  The soup is going to be donated to a local food bank. Donations are still being accepted.

 In addition to Picasso and Rockwell, students have learned about Keith Haring, Rene Magritte, and Frida Kahlo.  Future artists will include Henri Matisse, Georgia O’Keefe, and Edward Hopper.
