This year in art, we will focus on the exploration of materials and learning about the first four
Elements of Art:
Color, Shape, Line, and Texture
We started the year off by using the Primary colors to paint the rainbow. We started to experiment with color mixing to create the missing colors.
The first-grade artists listened to the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, and created their own dots which are on display in the hallway out to the art portable.
The kindergarten artists listened to the book, I'm Not Just a Scribble, by Diane Alber, and drew their own "scribble friends" with crayon and ink.
Both grades are now working on drawing seashells.
We learned about the Horizon line (because shells do not fly in the sky) and Contour lines (because artists describe shapes with contour lines, not words)
