Kandinsky Paintings

In Art class, 1st graders learned about two different types of shapes; geometric and free-from. Some examples of geometric shapes are circles, squares, and triangles. Some free-from shapes are cats, blobs, and me. Students created art just like the artist Kandinsky by painting geometric and free-form shapes. They painted shapes using the primary colors and then added black paint to show different types of lines.

In Art class, 5th graders studied Architecture. They learned about many famous buildings and architectural styles. Students then learned how to use shading to make drawings of skyscrapers appear
The last two pictures are great architecture books for kids!
