Kindergarten work with clay to create a hand print ornament for their family. Your hand is only this big for so long you know! They learned about what a slab is as well as the technique of scoring (which is basically scratching their name into clay here).

Fifth grade learned about Van Gogh and the process of painting the sunflower. We used thick brush strokes to get the same feel that Van Gogh had in his paintings. We tried to create texture through the paint. We also discussed composition and how to lay out a peice of art. Very nice results.

Second grade drew owls along with me and then used crayon, oil pastel, and tempera paint to create pattern and color. A little bit of depth through overlapping thrown in there as well. It was a good one day activity! Whoo!

Third grade learned about analogous colors and created these wonderful O'keeffe inspired flowers. We also discussed balance and what it looks like in a peice of art. Tempera paint, scissors, and glue were used for this one.
