The Art Show is coming!  The 5th and 6th graders are already painting their amazing canvases (and one group is doing ceramics!). Can't wait to see how they all turn out.

This Week in Art

It's been a crazy month!  The 5th and 6th grade classes are starting their projects for the Art Show, which is May 3rd.  The projects have been chosen, canvases distributed and paint mixed, so we are well on our way to an exciting and awesome show!

My second graders started the year with some circle paintings.  It was a little messy and a lot of fun!

Third Grade made some amazing hand bowls.  They painted them in the most interesting ways, I wish I had taken more pictures!

Kinder made the coolest robots this side of the moon.  A little bit os construction paper, some glue and a few sequins and googley eyes and they made some magic!

This Week in Art

Seconds Grade created snake coil pots or coil snails.  We let them dry, and spent this week painting them.  They are so cute!

Kindergarten made clay ornaments and painted them this week.  Parents, pretend it's a surprise :)

This Week in Art

It's been a very busy week!  Halloween was Tuesday, Family Art Night on Thursday, and we started our crosswalk painting on Friday.  Here are some of the highlights...

Sixth grade finished their wire sculptures. That was a fun project!

The crosswalks are getting a makeover at the elementary.  Our 5th & 6th graders competed to design these awesome new pieces.  We will be working on them as the weather permits...but as you can see a little rain couldn't stop us today!

This Week in Art

The third graders tried printmaking this week. Last week they painted a tree, and this week created leaves from styrofoam.  We painted them in fall colors and added them to our awesome trees. 
 In second grade, we are creating cityscapes out of scrap paper.  I was amazed at some of these awesome projects (look at that cat!!).
Kinder is starting to learn about texture, so we started with SLIME! They had a blast.

This Week in Art

Kinder is making Pattern Bracelets! They made patterns on paper last week, so this week we did the same in beads.  They were so proud of their work.

First grade is experimenting with textures.  We got to feel a bunch of different things including fur and bubble wrap. Then we used texture plates to do crayon rubbings.
