Space Travel.

Second grade used foam and ink to make these wonderful space traveling prints.  Each student made their own series of prints that was inspired by their very own space traveling machine they designed.  This was a fun experience for them....messy....but fun:)


Second graders learned about the process of printmaking and what it means to create a series of prints.  The theme we used was space travel since they are using outer space as the theme for their musical coming up.  Working with music.

Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh.

Kindergarten went through the book Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh.  I like to use this super simple story to teach primary and secondary colors.  The students got the primary color paint puddles and had to prove to me they could mix them to create the secondary colors just like in the story.  This was a great way to make the story come to life!

Today’s WOW art.

I am going to start posting random pieces of artwork throughout the rest of the school year that I think are WOW to me.  These works of art by multiple age levels are created and stand out to me for various reasons....they speak to me:)  I will snap the pic in real time and post it.  Students love this idea.

Kindergarten learned about the use of space and outer space at the same time.  I also threw in a little lesson about what it means to use balance.  I love construction paper crayons!  So fun.....so little clean up:)

Fifth graders brought it on this one!  The only requirement I had was that there had to be a cardinal in the painting somewhere.  The students came up with their own composition.  I am lucky because I get to stare at these paintings all day....at least until I have to hand them back:)
