Kindergarten: The kindergartners learned about the Element of Art, Line.  We also looked at how the illustrator used line in the story Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson.  Using black paint, students painted 5 lines on their paper.  This art piece will become a monster after 2 more art sessions.

First Grade: This week the first grades cut out their color wheels from last week.  The color wheels became an umbrella for their picture.  They added a rain coat, boots, and details to their art piece.  Next week we will add the raindrops using blue paint and our pinky finger as a tool.

Second Grade: Each class worked on 2nd grade show props or costumes.

Mrs. Jackson’s class: This was session 2 of paper daffodils making.

Mrs. Hernandez’s class:  The girls added the paper flowers to their headbands while the boys continued flower making for the set design.

Mrs. Huffman’s class:  As a group the class continued to add paper crepes to the Japanese Cherry blossom mural.

Mr. Inocencio’s class: The students continued making their paper beads.

Mrs. Davis’ class:  The students continued working on their Koala masks by adding furry ears, coloring in the eyes, and adding a headband.

Third Grade: This past week, the students continued their Keith Haring inspired line art.  They will need about 2 more art sessions to complete their piece for Art Box.

Fourth Grade:  Our focus in art class this week was learning how to draw a face with proper proportions. We used a head grid and handouts to help with drawing eyes, lips, and noses.

Fifth Grade: The fifth graders were introduced to the Elements of Design this week.  We focused on space especially on overlapping. Students were encouraged to observe the cactus plants for details in their drawings.

Sixth Grade: The 6th graders were introduced to the art of Zantangle. We looked at Pablo Picasso’s Guernica and the various values represented.  Using various values, students drew a flower and added Zantangle designs.

Mrs. Gersten and Miss Torres:  The students added rainbow colors to their line monsters. Mrs. Simmons:  The shooting start line projects are complete.  Pictures will be posted next week.
