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.

Family Art Night 2nd/3rd

Last night we had an absolute blast painting canvases with tape and acrylic paint.  Parents got to have a one-on-one date with their kids and make a fun project.

Watch for the sign ups for 4th/5h/6th grade Art Night, November 2nd.

This Week in Art Class

4th Graders studied American artist Alexander Calder.  We talked about his mobiles and stablies, then created our own using a single sheet of construction paper and some creativity.

The 1st graders have a hard time sitting still, so we did some still lifes :)
They practiced using their eyes to see shapes and lines and I am so proud of their work.

My 3rd graders used overlapping and blending analogous colors to create some tie dye fall pumpkins.  Come check them out on the board by the library upstairs!
