Let It Snow!

Kindergarten artists learned about landscapes while creating these sweet little snowscapes.  They also learned a fancy new art word: collage – meaning “to glue” in French!

First Grade Trees

WE CAN….make many, many kinds of lines!  First graders learned about one of our most important art elements – LINE.  They practiced making oodles of different kinds of lines, including zig-zag, mouse ears, roller coaster, castle, and cloud.

After tracing their hands to create their “tree”, lines and color were added.  Then they were challenged to make at least 8 different kinds of lines as they decorated their leaves.  They were up for the task!

Then came the tricky part – mindfully cutting out their leaves and glueing them to their trees….looking out for the Glue Monster (no big gobs of glue!) and placing their leaves using their “artist’s eye” for a beautiful fall work of art.
