5th Graders have been working on their drawing skills in their sketchbooks. We have learned about 1-point perspective and the “vanishing point” in a landscape. We’ve learned some facts of proportions of the human face and figure drawing. Ask your 5th Grader if they know what a contour line is?
4th Graders finally finished the tessellations. A tessellation is a repeated shape that fills up the entire surface area. Now we are playing with color. Students are creating wild colors by mixing parts of the 3 Primary Colors with white. Ask your 4th Grader “What are the 3 Primary Colors? Can you name some Secondary Colors? How would you make them?”
3rd Graders have been working on collages of animals done in the style of Author/Illustrator Eric Carle. So, they first created beautiful papers, rich with color and texture, in order to use in their collage. 3rd Graders are also making symmetrical designs out of their first names, written in cursive. They are excited about the crazy designs they are creating!
2nd Graders have been studying symmetry by creating beautiful, delicate snowflake designs.
1st Graders have been working for months on their “A Book About Me. They’ve been learning important things like their address, phone number, birthdate, and of course how to best illustrate those things. Ask your 1st Grader if they know their address, phone number, and birthdate.
Kindergarteners have been drawing, cutting, tracing, and creating artwork with symmetrical shapes.
