In the second part of our unit, second graders created a collage of three friends playing outside in a winter activity. Their challenge was to create the collage using only their fingers! Without the use of scissors, they had to keep their shapes very simple and make the choice to leave out details. The results were impressionistic and very fun to see. Many students presented their work to the class in a sharing session.

Second grade artists recently completed a unit on bodies in motion. The first project was to create an acrobat out of clay. They had to form a human figure out of the clay, trying to create the proper proportions, mix colors to decorate its circus costume, then choose an action pose in which to position it on its trapeze. They had great fun with it, and now the figures dangle overhead in the art room for all to see.
