1st grade textured fall still life

Value, shadow, texture, painting, drawing, composition, collage, still life as all elements our 1ST graders used in creating their fall still life pictures. Student examined the artwork of famous still life artists, real objects, and used exaggerated imagination to create their still life. There is 6 different kinds of texture on their artwork, can you spot them all???

Kindergarten Texture Prints

Kindergarten has been hard at work discovering texture. Students first rubbed with crayon to create textures on paper, then collage the paper in their season color pile of leaves. Students added many printed leaves on top.

5TH Grade self portrait pop art doodle prints!

Students created a doodled background of their most popular famous items that described them! Then our students created a reductive self portrait print from photography to finish off this Warhol inspired piece!

5th grade artwork showcased

Fifth grade has been secretly holding their artwork for the art and can finally reveal their amazing works! They did a color study with painting and composition techniques. These few examples show exceptional painting ability! Great job!

Kindergarten Textured, printed Fall collages

2nd grade textured eric carle self portraits

Our students are moving in to the second phase of Art making. Students will now be focusing on using a mixed media approach to art. This includes using collage methods, printmaking methods, and using various non traditional materials to create art! Students will be exploring how our senses- use of textures helps to create art, and also how to make turn 2 dimensional projects into 3D works of art!

Kindergarten water color Houses!

Kindergarten looked to Beverely Buchanan for inspiration
on this project! Students used lines, shapes, and personal experiences to bring their houses alive!
