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.

Second grade explored collage. I read them the awesome story "Where the Wild Things Are". The students used wild papers to build, design, and create their own wild thing. Oddly enough these wild things were very natural for them to do. I think they reflect their inner selves:) Great work!

First grade used scratch art paper to create spider web patterns. I taught them to draw a "+" sign, then an “X”, then a letter ”U” to connect the lines. The students figured out how to draw spiders on their own. They thought it was magical. Nice work first grade.

Second grade knows the difference between warm and cool colors pretty well now thanks to this project. The students also understand a little bit about contrast of colors and how it is important to use in order to create a focal point in a painting.

5th grade did a value test. The students had to come up with a composition using at least three pumpkins and a moon. They had to prove to me that they understood what value was. They had to show that they understand how a light reacts when it hits an object. Art tests are totally fun (at least to me).

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.

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.
