Walt Disney Animation Announces #Moana in Theaters Late 2016 MORE DETAILS HERE! - There's been talk of this for a while, so I'm definitely glad that it's now official. However, given that Moana is meant to be a Polynesian character and Disney`s rather checkered past record on working with non-European cultures...here's hoping they do their research properly this time ;) by gladys

Paul Klee, Black Columns in a Landscape, 1919 In the spring of 1919, Klee rented a large studio in the Schloss Suresnes, a neglected eighteenth-century palace in Schwabing, Munich's artists' quarter. According to Klee's son Felix, Suresnes, its park, and the nearby Englischer Garten served as inspiration for this watercolor. It depicts Ionic columns, a large chestnut leaf, a thin black cross, a small red pavilion, and a boat on the River Isar, which flows through Munich. by coleen

Olms are cave dwelling salamanders found in a number of caves in Southern Europe. Spending much of their lives in the dark, Olms make up for their under developed eyes through their acute senses of hearing and smell. This species is neotenous, much like the better know axolotl, meaning that they maintain many larval characteristics into maturity. by felicia

Our theme in first grade Art this year combined the spatial and naturalist intelligences as we explored Art in Nature. Artists love to create but they also observe. The first grade artists sharpened their observation skills as they sketched branches, counted tree rings and flower petals, and found beautiful imperfections in natural objects. Nature is a wonderful source for curiosity and creativity as the first grade artists create and discover. by mitzi
