Second graders learned about
cave art in this fun lesson. We looked at examples of cave art from the Lascaux Cave in France and even took a virtual tour of the cave. As we looked, we discussed some of the important elements of cave art. Cave art almost ALWAYS included animals, it showed the animals from the side view, and used natural colors (brown, black, tan, etc.).
Students crumpled up and tore brown paper to give it a rock like appearance. Second grades then developed sketches a cave animals, painted them and then added oil pastel details. The last step was having their hand sprayed with paint, just like the cave painters did.
In Art class, third graders have been learning about Veterans Day and how we honor those that serve in the armed forces on this day. The students created a collage artwork that incorporates the main symbol of America or Veterans Day, the American Flag.
Thank you Veterans for all that you do!
In Art class, second graders were inspired by
Eric Carle’s book,
“The Very Busy Spider.”
Students learned how Eric Carle created his illustrations in his books.
Like Carle, students painted large sheets of paper with bright colors and made designs in wet paint using their paint brush handles! Students reviewed how to mix secondary colors from the primary colors while painting.
Second graders cut and glued their papers to create their own very busy spiders!
Fourth and fifth graders created these awesome abstract sculptures in Art class! Students learned the definition of a sculpture (a three-dimensional artwork) and learned the difference between shape and form. Students used a block of wood, a wire from a hanger and a nylon to create the abstract form. Next, students had to choose analogous colors (colors that are next to each other on the color wheel) while painting. A big emphasis on the project was blending the colors into one another.
Way to go young artists! They look amazing!
