The first step is printmaking with mat board and acrylic paint. This year we are doing the city scapes on watercolor paper so the students can explore additional techniques.
Grade 2 students are studying things changing over time in their homerooms. In art they are creating mobiles representing objects or places, how they used to be and how they are now. Students are also learning about creating and using positive and negative space for composition, texture and pattern.
These are some of their pieces still in-progress.
On May 17th we are having an art show. There will be a drop-in reception that evening from 6-8PM. The art show is an event to celebrate all the work the students have done in their art class over the year. It is also to showcase the art curriculum. Each student from Kindergarten through 5th grade will have at least one 2-D art piece in the show along with a mini sculpture that will be apart of a school collaboration piece. Pieces are selected to highlight all the various skills and techniques the students are learning throughout the year.
If you cannot make it to the May 17th reception or would like a second look the show it will also be open for viewing from 8:30 AM-5:00PM on Friday, May 18th, 2018.
2nd graders collaborated with music to show texture on their “Wild Things.” The wild things were hung around the Gecko Theater for their performance.
