Second graders began their winter landscapes recently by beginning with painting the winter sky.

After adding the horizon line to their images everyone enjoyed the process of adding and mixing colors to their winter skies.

Although everyone used the same three colors, they all used different combinations of the colors to create their own unique sky.

All of the second graders did a great job learning to control their brushes while understanding how to use watercolor paint.

I look forward to seeing the next steps in their creative process of making their winter landscapes.

Everyone enjoyed seeing the various examples and exhibits of the artist’s varied work from sculpture, drawings and paintings to examples of his carvings.

Students had many questions about the life of the artist who was the first art teacher at the Willard City Schools.

The third graders enjoyed seeing the art work of former students of the artist.

Some of Charles’ former students have become professional artists, such as Don Moore and Steve Axtel, while others have made art a serious pursuit or hobby.

It was a great field trip for the students to connect with local art in their community and to learn about the art history of their town.

Take the time to support the arts in your local community by visiting a gallery, museum, concert or theatrical production.  It will grow your visual perception of the world you live in!
