Shape Alligators

In Art class, first graders have been busy learning about the art element of shape. Students learned there are two different types of shapes we talk about in art; geometric and free-form. Geometric shapes are shapes that have a specific name and are shapes we talk about in math (such as triangle, circle and square). Free-form shapes are shapes from things in nature (such as the shape of a cloud or leaf). First graders drew an alligator step by step using shapes! Students then used a steady hand to outline their drawing with sharpie. Finally, first graders painted their alligator green using yellow and blue liquid watercolors! Fantastic job first graders!
