Showing our colors!

We are starting off the year with a collaborative school-wide mural. Every student in grades 1-5 will make a colorful diamond to go into our "quilt." These are the diamonds from students that had art on our first day of school.

The idea for this mural was generously shared by a super star art teacher from California, website here: http://www.shinebritezamorano.com/2015/09/a-colorful-beginning.html

Hearts! We love February! These were made by Grade 1 artists. They formed pinch bowls out of earth clay, poked in patterns with a toothpick. Once they were fired, we colored them with crayon and liquid watercolors. 

Me in My Snow Clothes
by Grade 1. These were drawn in waterproof black marker, after a lesson in drawing the human body, all bundled up in snow gear. They painted them with tempera paint, with a focus on using small amounts of paint at a time and blending their own colors.
