Here are some samples:
We began with Fifth Grade. These students have been working on some pretty remarkable perspective drawings using colored pencils, water colors and a ton of rules. Below, you will find a sneak preview.
Sixth Graders are beginning to work on their Chuck Close self portraits. Using only finger prints!
Second Graders' Super Heroes are starting to come to life.
And Third Graders are beginning to finish their Cheetah Block Sculptures.
In Kindergarten today, we read some Eric Carle books and made our first deposit to our "Paper Bank."
We used oil pastels, liquid watercolors and rice paper.
The second group of First Graders had a chance to finish their action paintings today. We read "Action Jackson" and discussed the idea that images, paintings and artwork in general hold different meanings for different people. We also took turns "seeing" different stories in the paintings we looked at.
First Graders read a book about Jackson Pollack today and had a chance to try out painting in his style.
We did some more color mixing today in Kindergarten, in preparation for the lanterns we'll put together next week when our special friends are visiting.
Third graders have been working on these snakes for weeks and they are finally finished!
Well, nearly...we have two more to go. I will include them just as soon as they are completed and photographed.
I am truly impressed by the capabilities of these young designers.
