Fifth Graders have taken a break from their water color studies to design and create E-vent calendars. Originally, we had the idea of making advent calendars, but since not everyone celebrates advent or Christmas, we have decided to call them E-vent calendars. Each one reflects the personality and interests of the individual artist. We are a bit late in finishing, but we decided to go for quality rather than rushing to finish on time. We have two on-time finishers, and one almost on time finisher (myself:) We'll add to the gallery as we have more completed works.
Snakes are taking sssssshape!
AND Third Graders are so well-practiced at drawing and designing with fabric, they knocked out these amazing Swedish Dala Horses in a snap and a crack!
Water color skills are really coming along nicely in Fifth Grade.....
Kindergartners have been learning about shapes and how to mix colors. They have also been learning about the work of Wassily Kandinsky.
Today they added finishing touches to these amazing masterpieces.
This week in the art studio First Graders began to experiment with color and learned how to make a color wheel.
First we read this book - which I've loved since I was little......
We watched this little video:
Then we got to work!
Kindergarten had their first visit to the Art Studio today!!!!
We started our session reading this book:
And identifying, describing and discussing these shapes:
Next, we took turns choosing our favorite shape and drawing it someplace on our paper to create an interesting composition. Finally, we added color. Yay Kindergarten artists!
Second Graders at St. Thomas's Day School study and learn about their immigrant ancestors. The art projects that we do are usually based on arts and crafts from around the world. These Calder-esque sculptures were created after the students learned about Mexican Alebrije carvings. (Only the first half of the sculptures have been completed and photographed. The second half of the class will finish their sculptures next week.)
