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!

Some students used line to outline their shape.
Others filled in their flowers with lines and shapes.
Everyone enjoyed the process of adding color and design to their flowers.
Next everyone added watercolor paint.
Students learned to add water and allow the water and paint to mix.
Some students outlined their flower with a pattern.

All of the students were very focused during their studio time.
Everyone also had a great time in art!
Here are some examples of their work:
Kindergarten and first grade students have been exploring the shamrock shape.
Students first cut out a shamrock stencil shape.
After cutting out the stencil, students transferred the shape to green construction paper to make their own shamrock.
After creating their own shamrocks, students created a shamrock person.
Again students used their stencils to create their shamrock cartoon characters.
Everyone was excited to use their imaginations as they made their shamrock people.
Students also enjoyed using crayons and markers to complete their drawings.
Here are some examples of the kindergarten and first grade drawings:
Kindergarten and first grade students explored creating stencil designs with hearts.
After creating a heart stencil with a positive and negative shape, students explored adding color.
First graders focused on creating texture with their designs.
Kindergarten students explored combining colors together for their hearts.
Everyone loved the opportunity to explore new ways of creating heart designs.
There are a multitude of creative ways to use stencils, and everyone learned to make and create with them in art class.
Kindergarten students explored the heart shape as they learned how to create a heart shaped stencil.
Students developed their cutting skills in this project as they folded and cut out a heart shape.
Cutting is a difficult skill to master, and everyone builds their skills with this project.
The next step is to use the stencil to create heart shapes.
This step requires focus and the use of two hands in the drawing and tracing process.
Finally students have the opportunity to create many colors and textures on their hearts.
All of the students love the opportunity to express themselves with many new types of art materials.
Here are some examples of their heart designs:
