1st graders learned new art vocabulary this week: Geometric and Organic shapes. I started our discussion asking students if they knew what organic meant, most of them answered with one simple word "food" :) After we talked about shapes, students got to practice their fine motor skills and cut out their geometric and organic shapes (that they drew) and then make a collage with their shapes - very creative!
Kindergarten students had the chance to create their first "Fall" art today. We created trees by tracing our hands/arms and then colored green leaves around the tree (our hand). Next we got to finger paint (they loved this part). We used red, orange, and yellow (fall colors), we dipped our fingers in the paint to make the leaves :) I love the way these trees turned out - fall is my favorite time of the year. If i could find a place that had fall all year long, I would be there in a heartbeat.
5th graders are finishing up their "Tropical Birds" this week. The Art to Remember art will go home on October 11th and will be due back at school on October 18th.
4th graders are still working hard on their Van Gogh Sunflowers and we hope to have them completed by next week... pictures soon! The wait will be well worth it :)
