2nd Graders are using a complementary color combination (directly across from each other on the wheel) to start their paper-weaving project. Progress on their weaving can be seen below! More to come soon!
On the second day of paper-weaving (click to enlarge the images below), students created a NEW layer using a white paper illustrated with a variety of types of lines! This addition creates more texture and interest for the viewer!
On the LAST day of paper weaving, students were able to add a textured layer using wall paper samples! After everything was done, students trimmed and glued their weavings to help them stay in place! Check out the final results below!

After completing sketchbooks, and paintings inspired by THE DOT, it is time for all elementary classes to move on to their first individual project! All projects are inspired by the COLOR WHEEL. Each grade will complete a project inspired by a different color scheme.
Kindergarten - All colors :)
1st Grade - Secondary
2nd Grade - Complementary
3rd Grade - Warm/Cool
4th Grade - Monochromatic
5th Grade - Analogous
Mrs. Hongisto's class will be practicing types of lines to make a Mexican Serape! This serape will be completed with all colors, along with a variety of lines (straight, wavy, zig-zag, spiral), and cut fringe on the edges! I'm excited to start this project with my youngest artists soon!
Mrs. Ekberg's class will be focusing on SECONDARY COLORS, which are all of the hues that are creating by mixing the primary colors. These colors are orange, purple and green! Using those colors, a festive pumpkin scene will be created by mixing their own colors of paint! They have already started this project - check out their progress HERE.
Mrs. Dubord's class is assigned the color scheme of COMPLEMENTARY COLORS. Complementary colors are pairs of hues that are directly across from each other on the wheel, like purple and yellow for example. This class will be completing a paper-weaving project using a complementary combination as their base. Their progress can be seen HERE.
Students in Mrs. Eichmeier and Mrs. Veeser's classes will be learning about warm and cool colors. They will use this color scheme to create an illustration of a small grouping of pumpkins, with warm colors for the pumpkins, and cool colors in the background.
Mrs. Martin's class will be creating a tree silhouette with a MONOCHROMATIC COLOR scheme for the background. A monochromatic scheme using tints and shades of a single hue, like yellow for example.
Mr. LaBonte's class will be creating a circle weaving based on an ANALOGOUS COLOR scheme. Analogous colors are neighboring colors on the wheel. The start of this project can be seen here.
