2nd Grade artists completed this lovely sunset paintings. The process went something like this:
1. Draw a sunset design with black sharpie marker
2. Fill in the white paper with watercolor paint. Warm colors for the sky. Cool colors for the ocean.
3. Go over the dried paint with oil pastel to enhance the color.
4. Matte the final painting on blue construction paper to finalize it.
The results are fantastic, and the 2nd graders had a lot of fun completing this project!
Owls were the subject of this adorable creation by my youngest artists - The Young 4's class. These students are 3 and 4 years old, and keep me on my toes. The owls were completed in multiple class periods... focusing on a section each time. The owl shape is filled with various lines. They learned about straight, broken, zig-zag, and wavy. The background of the night sky was filled with cool colors - greens, blues, and purples (Black might have snuck in there, too). Then basic shapes were added to give the owl a face, and wings. I think the results are just cute as a button!
Also pictured are the final results of their Mixed Media project. Masking tape was removed to reveal North Central Art in lettering. :)
2nd graders started to learn about the Color Wheel. They should be experts on complementary colors, warm/cool colors, and primary/secondary colors. After a quick review, we painted sunsets with the theme of warm vs. cool colors. So far so good! We'll finish them up next tme.
This weekend, thanks to my family who were visiting, I finally went through all of the art room. Every cabinet, cupboard and cranny was organized, cleaned, and sorted through. I am so excited! I changed around the seating arrangement, and am anxious to keep rolling with projects!
We should be finishing our current project within a week or two, depending on the working pace of each class. After these introductory projects are complete, I believe we are going to move on to projects based around the Color Wheel.
Thanks again for all of the support, and for reading the website!
