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:)

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.

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.
