First Lessons of the Year

At Cogburn we always focus on the ELEMENTS OF ART Students concentrate on learning Line, shape, color, form, space, value and texture. Artists like Jasper Johns, Eric Carle, Lois Ehlert, and Wayne Thiebaud are all great examples of artists who use the elements of art.

Above you can see 5th grade mixing colors to achieve the correct color theories.

Here is a 1st grader from Mr. C's class who decided to wear his art color wheel to class.
