Secondary Birds

In Art class, 5th graders reviewed the primary colors; red, yellow and blue and the secondary colors; orange, green and purple. Students “took at walk” with their paint brushes as they created an abstract painting using the primary colors to create the secondary colors.
Next, students used their cutting and gluing skills to create these magnificent birds!

Hoppy Easter!

I know I've posted these before but I love them and will probably do them every year! I got the idea from Artsonia. They take about an hour and 1/2. Main emphasis was TEXTURE!
