First grade students explored color as they painted pumpkins.
Students explored various types of oranges and how they are created.
Everyone enjoyed learning about the different types of oranges as they used dots of color to fill their pumpkin paintings.
It was a fun project to discover color mixing concepts in first grade.
Sixth grade students completed their assemblage projects by adding some color.
Everyone had many choices of color to add to their projects.
Part of the art process is making many decisions.
Everyone also had to decide how much color to add.
With all of the decision-making, students learned that their art has many possibilities and many possible outcomes.
Everyone enjoyed adding color and exploring where to place the color in their projects.
Here are some examples of the students’ work:
Third grade students have been drawing shoes.
Students added color to their ink drawings of shoes.
Students used related colors from the color wheel to add harmony to their images.
This required focus and concentration from the students.
Next students cut out their shoes.
Third graders picked a background color that was related to the colors they chose for their shoe.
Everyone did a great job drawing their shoes adding color and learning many new art concepts in the process.
Here are some examples of the students’ work.
Fourth grade students had fun creating painted paper.
Students began by adding color with crayon on their large paper, working as a group.
Everyone enjoyed the kinetic feel of scribbling with crayon to cover a large area.
Students next added paint using paint scrapers.
Students explored variations of green by adding blue, yellow, white and black tempera to the green on their paper.
Everyone enjoyed the process of mixing paint and creating texture with the paint scrapers.
The painted paper that the students created will become the medium used for a future project.
Kindergarten and first grade students have explored the art movement of pointillism.
Students used tempera paint and cotton swabs to create dots of color on their tree paintings.
Pointillism is a post-impressionist school of painting exemplified by Georges Seurat and his followers in late 19th-century France, characterized by the application of paint in small dots and brush strokes.
Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image.
The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation.
Students used a variety of green hues along with yellow and red to create the color on their tree paintings.
After completing their trees, students spent the next week using the same technique on the background.
Students added many hues of blue and violet to their background.
The students enjoyed this project as they had to focus on where to place their dots of color as they created their images.
This was a great project for students to explore new art movements and techniques.
