Fourth and fifth grade students created a collective series of work to honor veterans for Veterans Day this year.
Students created the Ohio flag.
They also made a flag of the United States.
Students also created a poster for the army, navy , air force, marines and the coast guard.
After drawing the design and tracing it with marker, students added a wash of watercolor paint for the background.
After retracing the poster with marker, students began to use dots of paint in a pointillistic manner.
Every group began adding dots of color to their art work.
Collectively the work began to take shape as dots and colors began to fill in the design.
It was fun to watch the students take ownership of their work as their skills increased.
All of the students were introduced to new art techniques and design ideas as they worked cooperatively on this project.
Here are examples of their work:
