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.
Second grade students are learning about landscapes this year.
Our first landscape project of the year was creating a pumpkin patch landscape this autumn.
After drawing their landscape students added marker to outline portions of their image.
The next step was to erase unwanted pencil lines.
Students then added crayon to specific portions of their image to add emphasis to their landscapes.
Adding a watercolor wash was the next step in creating their mixed media landscape.
Students added a wash of orange to the lower half of their images to cover the pumpkin patch.
The final step was to add a wash of blue over their sky.
A lot of focus was required to create their mixed media landscapes.
The students did a wonderful job with their pumpkin patch images.
Here are some examples of their work:
