R.O.Y. trees.

Second grade has been studying color and how it all works.  This was a study on warm colors.  The students needed to show that they knew warm colors by painting warm color trees.  It turns out that the Fall colors are warm:)  Happy Fall everyone.

Lines and shapes.

Kindergarten used scissors to cut different lines to create shapes.  They have learned that lines are used to draw with as well as paint with and even cut with.  The students are starting to realize that lines are very important in the art world.  Now we just need to work on getting in line at the end of class;)  Nice work Kindergarten.

The perfect Fall tree.

Third grade was given the challenge of painting the perfect Fall tree.  I googled the perfect Fall tree painting and showed the students what google thought was the perfect Fall tree.  We then discussed the different paintings and came to realize everyone is different and has a different idea of the perfect tree.  After our discussion they just painted away....nice job third.

Piet Mondrian paintings.

Second grade learned about the artist Piet Mondrian.  He mostly used the primary colors which is what we were learning about.  Second grade students also learned through Piet that sometimes art can be incredibly simple.  So we painted little Mondrians ourselves.  Everyone was successful!

The study of color.

Third grade just got done studying the color wheel and how colors basically work.  So we did a paint test to see if they understand.  Fun test, I got good reviews on this one.  Nice work third.
