2nd grade Yoga Sculptures

2nd Grade students studied the artwork of George Segal - a sculpture artist who used plaster to create his Pop Art styled sculptures. Students mimicked his style by using foil and paper mache to create Yoga style people. STudents had fun posing and doing gesture drawings to get the form of their figures and then getting messy with paper mache'!

Paul Klee K self portraits.

Kindergarteners studied Paul Klee and his portrait work. We discussed how color conveys emotions in artwork. Students drew self portraits with different emotions and then painted them according to their emotions.

Organic Shaped Octopus!

These goofy organic shaped octopus are on the loose! Kindergarten learned about octopus and finding organic shapes in nature. They used newspaper and paper mache to create their creatures with painted details!

4 th grade 1 point perspectives

AWESOME 1 Point Perspective drawings. 4th grade students created great drawings, a technique I didn't learn until high school. They used their favorite letters and numbers to inspire them enhancing them with markers and colored pencil. These really look like outer space!
