Mondrian study.

Kindergarten learned about the primary colors and did a cut and paste collage just using squares, rectangles, and triangles....just like Piet Mondrian.  They also made creative choices with their space.

Mondrian spiders.

Second grade students were reminded about the primary colors and learned about an artist name Piet Mondrian.  The spider web was difinately more difficult than I thought it would be.  But it worked....see!

Painting techniques.

First Grade learned about painting by the use of line as well as the blotch technique.  We used a purple sheet of paper to paint on.  We also discussed  that yellow and red make orange....which happen to be Fall colors.

The use of SPACE.

The second graders learned about space and how the way you use space affects how you see things.  Space is basically the area around and between objects.  Second graders got it!

Yet, another monster.

I just had to throw this one on!


I had multiple classes do oil pastel monsters while I was out taking care of a family situation.  The students loved it as well as the sub I had.  Really, how can you not love doodling a monster.  Tis the season.

Color schemes and patterns.

The fourth graders discussed and learned about what a color scheme is and how to use it in a design.  Also, they brought back their pattern skills from way back in kindergarten.  The students used a template I made to draw the leaf, that way there was no stress involved with this project!
