Kindergarten students began the year learning about the art element, Line. They learned what a line was and that they use different kinds of lines every day. They were allowed to explore drawing different kinds of lines. After hearing the story Only One You by Linda Kranz, each student created their own fish and decorated it with thick, thin, curvy, straight, etc. lines to make their fish unique. They finished their fish by adding lines of tissue paper for the tail and fins. They did an amazing job and the fish look so bright and colorful in our hallways!

Last week’s snow days off – lovely as they were – have really made a jumble of the art room schedule. I’ve got kids in all different stages of many projects, which makes me a little bit frizzled. So some of my kiddos who are way ahead of the other classes have been doing some fun little Valentine projects while the other classes catch up. They are having a blast and I’m enjoying chilling with them a bit too!

Surprisingly, these goofy Love Bugs created by First and Second grades were their favorite!
Caterpillar and Fly Love Bugs – and the artist is pretty cute too!
Kindergarten artists enjoyed creating their own “Magnificent Me” portraits after enjoying The One, The Only Magnificent Me by Dan Haseltine.
We drew really, really big ovals with black crayons and then added lots of fun Magnificent Me details – spouting horns, wings, and feathery feathers. Then we (gasp!) painted in our very first art class! What great fun for my first-timers in the art room. Check out their beautiful results.
Don’t you just love the wall of owls created by our Kindergarten artists?!
