Up, Up, and Away!

Second grade artists reviewed the art element of LINE as they created these gorgeous hot air balloons.  After adding all the lines they could dream up, they carefully added color using watercolor paint.   And of course these beautiful balloons needed to float in the sky…so our artists chose just the right map from an [...]

First Grade Trees

Kindergarten artists worked with Model Magic to create these wonderful snails. The artists had so much fun coloring their white model magic with markers before creating their snails.
