Our first project of the 2016-2017 school year began with building.
Kindergarten students explored building with 3D geometric shapes.
Everyone was fully engaged as they explored building towers, castles and houses of the future.
We also explored building bridges and skyscrapers.
Learning through play builds skills that young artists use throughout their educational experience. It’s great to start art off with fun!
Have a great Summer Break! Artmanews will return in September!
Second grade students created neon flowers in the manner of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Students were divided into groups and, after viewing work by the artist Georgia O’Keeffe, began drawing large flowers.
Every group worked cooperatively.
After drawing their flowers, students moved to marker to enhance their pencil work.
The students worked very well together to complete this stage of their images.
Next students employed neon crayons.
Each group decided which areas to color and not to color with crayon.
The second graders worked hard to add rich color with the neon crayons.
The final step was to add liquid watercolor.
Students used related colors and worked to dry the remaining paint away with towels.
Here are some examples of their images:
Most of the elementary art students participated in creating some type card for Mother’s Day this year.
Kindergarten students used colored pencils to create line pattern with their Mother’s Day card.
First graders used scissors and crayons to create a pop-out card for their moms.
Second grade students created a cut out Mom card.
Third grade students created an M-shaped card for Mother’s Day.
Everyone concentrated on creating the perfect card for Mom!
All of the students incorporated learned skills and some new ones to create a card filled with design elements.
I’m sure every mom was thrilled with their uniquely created card for Mother’s Day!
