Mark Rothko imposters.

First graders learned about an artist originally from Russia named Mark Rothko.  He was an abstract expressionist.  Basically he painted a few colors on a canvas and called it good:)  Anyway, we studied one of his paintings that sold for $86,882,500!  It was called Orange, Red, Yellow.  Painted in 1961.  I think first grade did just as good as he did:)

Gameboy out of nowhere.

A couple of weeks ago this was found stapled to my wall:)  I really enjoy when I see something that was from the 80's.....also know as my childhood.  Little random images also tells me a little more about the artists that create them.

Kindergarten collaged some awesome cardinals playing in the snow.  We are hitting hard the use of shapes as well as our basic cutting skills.  They are coming around:)

The clay emoji.

Fifth grade created clay emojis.  We learned about what it takes to become an emoji artist.....sometimes art can be SO simple.  Nice work fifth!

The ceramic owl.

Second grade worked hard on a clay slab project.  Our inspiration was the bird called the owl.  We discussed facts about the bird and observed the basic shapes it takes to sculpt an owl.  We also learned about the element of texture and how it can be used in art to create pattern.  I wish I could take all these home with me.

A kindergartner left this for me on my desk today as he left. Rafael the Ninja Turtle. I love receiving little masterpieces from my little artists:)

Kindergarten learned how to break objects into shapes and lines and put them together to create a recognizable image such as a turkey.  It is turkey season after all.  We also used our awesome painting skills to add color.  While the students did this they also learned some cool facts about turkeys.
