First Grade Paintings!

The first grade students created watercolor resist paintings of their houses. We discussed the "stereotyped" version of a house (a rectangle with a triangle on top for the roof), and we decided that each person's house is unique and looks different. Instead of following the stereotyped method of creating their houses, the students made an effort to draw the shapes of their actual houses.

3rd Grade Collages

The Third Grade students learned how to differentiate between warm and cool colors. They selected warm and cool clippings from magazines and created warm/cool color collages. The collages are hung up next to eachother in our art room, and they look like patchwork quilts!

Creative Color Wheels

For the sixth graders' first art project of the year they are making creative color wheels! The students learned how to mix the three primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) in order to create secondary colors (orange, green, violet) and tertiary colors (red-violet, blue-violet, red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green).

More photos will be posted soon of the completed color wheels.
