Before winter arrives…two more fall projects from G-Town first and second graders. Both classes focused on the art element of LINE as they created turkeys and trees.
First Grade Fall Trees – firsties worked on their cutting and glueing skills while creating their trees. Bonus – a little painting, a favorite in the first grade crowd.
Second Grade Line Turkeys – gotta love the knobby little turkey knees.
See more turkeys and trees at our ARTSONIA on-line art gallery HERE.
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.
More of our beautiful line trees can be found at our ARTSONIA on-line art museum!
The blustery cold weather has inspired our Georgetown artists to create some fun “wintery” projects. We are also starting our study and review of color, and these projects are reinforcing our understanding of color families such as primary and secondary colors, and warm/cool colors.
First grade artists are working on these nice warm/cool holiday trees.
Second grade artists are finishing up some awesome grinches, focusing on shading and warm/cool color combinations.
Third graders are enjoying exploring different color families as they create these colorful candy canes!
Fourth and Fifth grade artists created visual interest with line, shape, and color as they created their Nutty Nutcrackers.
Parents…these projects can be found on our on-line art gallery, ARTSONIA.
Kudos to these fellow art teachers for our project inspiration:

Third graders have just finished up a multi-media fall project. We began by exploring different ways to make lines, drawing trees with coffee stir-sticks and india ink. The results were beautiful…the line drawings could have stood alone as finished art!
One of our inspirations for these tree drawings was from this blog: iheartprintsandpatterns – beautiful ideas for decorative tree drawings.
We followed up with watercolor and oil pastel for our landscapes.
And finally….a little texture review and crayon leaf rubbing to complete our fall compostion. (Doesn’t matter how old you are, leaf texture rubbings are ALWAYS fun and exciting to create!)
The final results….a beautiful fall inspired landscape.
