|Beginning the year with Van Gogh in mind! |
Let's get "Gogh"ing!
|Everyone starts out small but everyone can|
make a BIG impact through Art.
|Reviewing and Previewing with First graders about Weather|
and Instruments used for measuring it, creating Weather Vanes
with Cardinal Directions and learning to draw weather.
|Kindergarten learns about Printmaking and the Rainbow|
while learning to use screaming crayons to draw lines and
whispering crayons to color in.
|First graders set up their own still Life using art supplies.|
|They get busy making sketches of what they see, and then we make|
our final drawing after hearing some tips to make it easier.
|Have you learned about tints and shades?|
These student were given a hue of paint and asked to experiment
with it and white, to see just what happened.
|Some even had time to go back in and add designs and|
patterns inside of their white space to make their flags a bit
more artistic and to show more of what they know.
|Students made and created sketchbooks in grades 3-5.|
|Veteran's Day is here and our second graders have been learning the|
skill of weaving. They got bust to weave a work of art out of
paper and they were put together to create a lovely bulletin board for
our Veteran's Day program.
|Third graders talked about Howard Finster and folk art. They|
created paper mache' gourds and were busy getting them
ready to make them into a work of art.
|Here are our gourds as they dry.|
|Kindergarten worked on Mono printing. A type of printmaking|
similar to our hand prints, but we painted the table and drew in the paint
with our fingers.
|Here is another example, students were able to go back in|
and add more details and designs. We used a limited color
scheme and talked about our flag and the meaning of the
|Clean room- it DOES NOT look like this now!|
|Kindergarten learned about 2Dand 3D shapes.|
We learned the differences in the number of faces and
the vertices. We learned how we can draw them
and make them look differently.
|Sorry they are sideways... had some trouble getting them to turn|
vertically for you to see.
|Second graders worked on Printmaking. We then worked on|
paper manipulation and created designs that would be seen at
our Veteran's Day program.
|1st graders had a review of lines, patterns, tracing geometric shapes|
cut shapes and glued. We kept the Patriotic color scheme
and we created a designer frame to finish off our works.
|Romero Britto brings his paintings to life with color and pattern|
and with a variety of design. Our Second graders pull
their sketches together for a patriotic theme and created
these beautiful examples of works of art.
|First graders again discussed weather and weather vanes. We|
explored the barn yard and created a watercolor resist painting
that will knock your socks off.
|While Mandalas are normally made of beautifully colored sands|
Kindergarten explored how they could make patterns and designs
in a radial format.
|Red Ribbon Week came quick and a last minute idea came together|
|Fifth grade worked on creating a watercolor painting|
that illustrated a symbol of America to them. We were learning
the proper use and technique of watercolor and finding our
art was improving as a result.
|Third graders also worked on drawing Light till it's Right and|
then discovering how the watercolors would work for the
media. We discussed watercolor techniques and worked on
creating a patriotic work of art.
|Tacky day, I of course came less tacky and more|
or less not matchy. I came dressed in
the primary colors and introduced Roy Lichtenstein,
as this was his color palette.
|In Flander's Field was the inspiration for this bulletin board|
and it helped us to see Veteran's Day as a moment to reflect
on things we have to be thankful for, including our soldiers.
|Fifth grade watercolors.|
|Second graders reviewed their learned Native American|
history and we discussed weaving being more than decorative,
it was needed for a way of life. We also worked on thematic
colors schemes of America and all together our weaving created
|Veteran's Day displays.|
|First graders worked on creating a Fairy Tale by first|
discussing and creating textures, figures
and then by writing about them.
