Kindergarten and First Grade have both completed monster projects. Yay Halloween!
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!
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.
