Second grade students have been learning about the art element of line.
One way students learned about line was exploring how to use a ruler.
Everyone used pencil to create some repeating line in a pattern.
After feeling comfortable with the pencil, students moved on to colored pencil with repeating lines.
Second graders also explored line with scissors.
Everyone learned there are many ways and tools to use line in creating art.
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.
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.
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!
Sixth grade students created paper flowers for Mother’s Day this year.
At the beginning of this project students were not sure if they would like it, some of them feeling they may be too old for this type of a project.
By the end of this studio class everyone was really focused and enjoyed the project.
This flower building required the students to follow directions and use their hands to fold and mold a medium-size flower.
This project required the students to focus their efforts as they used their motor skills with this basic paper craft project.
Students were happy with their efforts at the end of art class.
Many colorful flowers were created for Mother’s Day!
Kindergarten and first grade students have been exploring clay.
Students explored oil-based clay as they created coils and ropes.
Everyone had fun learning to use the clay as students developed motor skills and hand and eye coordination.
Learning to use clay is always a fun and enjoyable project for the kindergarten and first grade students.
Students also explored braiding their clay coils together.
These new skills will be revisited during the school year for students to increase their skill, knowledge and technique in this media of clay.
It is also a fun project that everyone loves at the beginning of the year!
Kindergarten students have recently explored the star shape.
Students were given star shapes of various sizes to cut out.
This required a lot of concentration from the students to focus on the shape and cutting around the line of the shape.
Students build their motor skills that are used in every skill in their schooling.
The next step was to glue and arrange their stars on a field of black construction paper.
Everyone had to learn control in using the glue bottle, focusing on small drops of glue.
Students learned many skills with this project and were introduced to the Starry Night painting by Vincent van Gogh.
This was a great project to introduce kindergarteners to many new art concepts and skills.
Here are a few examples of their projects.
Kindergarten students explored the concepts of leaves, collage and organic shapes this autumn.
Students continued to develop their motor and cutting skills as they cut out organic leaf shapes.
Students focused on cutting apart the shapes and following the organic lines of the leaves.
Kindergarteners were also introduced to complementary colors as they used the colors opposite of each other on the color wheel for the leaves and background of their collage.
This was a great project for students to be introduced to many different art concepts.
The final step was to arrange and glue their leaves into a collage.
The kindergarteners were excited to take home their leaf collages.
