Building

Standard

First grade students explored building with squares and rectangles for their first art class this new school year.

Play is a great method for students to learn and explore while engaging their imaginations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students used the brightly colored shapes to create buildings, animals, flying machines and objects that can only be found through the creative process.

This was a great opening project to engage the students’ minds, hands and imaginations through visual art.

Beginnings

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Our first project of the 2016-2017 school year began with building.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Kindergarten students explored building with 3D geometric shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone was fully engaged as they explored building towers, castles and houses of the future.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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!

Process

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Sixth grade art students are in the process of creating their 3D animal masks.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Some students are working from a balloon shell that was created from paper mache and then cut in half.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Other students are working from cardboard and creating their mask from cardboard shapes they are putting together.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This has been a difficult project for students to think through the building process and design in the third dimension.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The process of creating always sounds fun but in reality it is hard work to try something that is new and unfamiliar and to stretch oneself in new directions.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I am excited  to see how the students continue to work and resolve their creative problems while building their masks.

Paper mache

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Sixth grade students are learning to paper mache as they work to create animal masks.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone seems to enjoy the messy process of adding paste to paper and covering a balloon.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have been designing an animal mask they wish to create.  After their initial design work paper mache is their next step.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The sixth graders have been discovering that creating a mask is a project that keeps you constantly learning new processes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone is excited about learning this new process and moving forward with their mask project.

Building skills

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As the 2014-2015 school year dawns my first task as an art teacher is to build and awaken the dormant creative spirit that lies within all my students.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Our first project in kindergarten is to explore building with shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students are given a variety of shapes and building materials as they process to create sculptural inventions.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have been very inventive with their creations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

First grade students have been using a different building material that is based upon squares and rectangles.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This building medium has required the students to view construction from a cubistic standpoint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students will use these introductory sessions of building in their creative explorations this school year.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Art has a way of engaging the whole learning experience as students will carry their creative experience into the rest of their school day.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I hope that you will follow us this year on our creative journey.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The students are excited to learn, and maybe their experience will inspire you!

Building a drawing

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The second graders’ last project of the year incorporated building and drawing together.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students worked together to build many wonderful types of buildings and structures.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This project required focus, cooperation and imagination.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Many thoughtful decisions had to be made by the students.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

There were also many discussions during the creative process.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The final step for the second graders was to draw their creations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students put much thought into creating their buildings and exploring how to translate them into a drawing.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was a fun project that allowed the students to work and think in new ways.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone enjoyed being able to take home their vision of what they built in art class.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was a great project to stimulate the students’ creative imaginations!

Basic dinosaurs

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

A fun first grade end of the year project was to create dinosaurs from basic shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The first step was to cut out all of the various shapes given to the students.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This required lots of focus and concentration.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students next worked to put together their shapes to build a dinosaur.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Finally students glued their creations together and added color to finish their images.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are some examples of their dinosaur images.
