Kindergarten: The kinder students completed their pipe cleaner line picture this week.
First Grade: This week the students had the opportunity to explore with paper. The students learned paper sculpting techniques. Then they started their paper animal sculptures.
Second Grade: The 2nd graders completed their Poppy Field Art.
Third Grade: Check out these beautiful monochromatic oceans! After their students completed their art projects we had “Museum Time.” The students gave their artwork a title and wrote a short description. Then we walked around the room and practiced being respectful observers of other people’s artwork.
Fourth Grade: We had a blast learning how to printmake in 4th grade. For this project, we used leaves (from around the school), gel trays (I made these trays out of unflavored gelatin on a cookie sheet), a brayer, and black tempera paint. First the students added ink to their tray and used a brayer to distribute the paint. Then they addedthe leaves on top. Lastly they placed the paper over the leaves and “massaged” the paper. Here are a few student samples of the prints.
Fifth Grade: The students were hard at work with the animal eye drawings. We will need another art session to complete the eyes.
