Preschool - Three Birds in a Nest project
We read the book, Birds' Nests by Eileen Curran and discussed the types of materials birds use to build their nests.
We reviewed the letter, "B" as in Blue and Bird.
Students began their project by cutting out oval shapes for their nests and for their three birds. They glued the shapes onto paper plates. They added beaks to the birds faces and decorated their nests with a variety of colored paper and feathers. The project will be completed next week.
JK and Kindergarten - St. Patrick's Puppy and the Pot of Golden Dog Biscuits
Students are having fun creating their St. Patrick's project with a variety of materials: Templates, pencils, glue, colored paper, crayons and color markers.
First grade - Marbling Paper project
Students worked with watercolor paper and color dyes (non-toxic and child-friendly) to create marbling effects on their paper. After the paper dried, the children cut shapes out from it, in addition to working with color construction paper to create their masterpieces!
Second grade - Geometric Drawings
Students learned about "Modern Art" by viewing geometric compositions by artists, Paul Klee and Kasimir Malevich.
The children created their geometric drawings with templates, color pencils or oil pastels.
Third grade - Monotype (printmaking): Landscapes
A Monotype is created by transferring an image from a plate (a flat surface) onto a piece of paper. Each student created his/her landscape by painting with block ink on a plate. After placing white paper onto the plate and pressing down on the surface, the paper was removed from the plate.
