I cannot believe that our third week of school is already over! Due to my rotating schedule, I have only see classes once or twice so far at the elementary. Our first mission in all classes was to create sketchbooks, learn new routines, and get accustomed to the art room. Now that we're into a routine, I'm moving onto collaborative projects. The K-2nd grade students (lower elementary) will be creating a mixed media mural similar to the image below. I was incredibly inspired by fellow art teacher Cassie Stephens, but plan to make my own twist of her original design.
1st and 2nd grade students will all be creating the flower designs first. Some classes started their backgrounds to their flowers this past week. We talked about colors that are near each other on the color wheel and mix well when we are painting. In their next class, they will be adding designs ON TOP of their painted layer with construction paper crayons and oil pastels.
The first days of painting can be seen below. Click to enlarge.
The upper elementary (3rd-6th) will also be creating a collaborative piece. This concept was inspired by Libs Elliot as well as fellow art teacher Mrs. Nguyen. More details to come soon, as they will be starting this next week! Check out some sneak peeks pictures below. These are inspirational pictures - ours will turn out a little differently. Can't wait!
