This week I was SO proud of all my Wildcat artists! They did such an amazing job staying on task and trying their very best on their art projects. Here's a snapshot of what we did this week:
Our pumpkin drawings look so good they almost seem real! After being scientists and learning how we can make every color in the rainbow using our three primary colors, we mixed yellow and red to make a beautiful pumpkin orange. Next week we will finish our paintings, just in time for October!
Our beautiful water paintings would look too empty without a water lily like the ones we saw in Claude Monet's garden. After learning about shapes without names (organic shapes!), we drew our water lily and added green tissue paper to brighten it up. Our final touch will be to add a blooming lily flower on the top.
Paul Klee is a famous artist who painted many pictures of fish, so in second grade we used Paul Klee's paintings as inspiration to begin drawing our fish. After drawing the basic shapes of a fish, we took a look at some real fish and changed our fish drawings to make them more unique.
Our houses are starting to look realllllyyyy spooky! Starting first with simple shapes and lines, we then went back and added details to our architecture. The students are coming up with so many unique and interesting ideas for their houses, check them out below!
The 4th graders were amazed this week when we put together our tints, tones and shades on our fall trees. The colors really pop! Looks like our contour line trees will be changing colors with the trees outside!
Drawing self-portraits is very challenging, but the 5th graders handled it no problem this week. Our "selfie" portraits are finally taking shape, and look just like us! Using mirrors, we will continue to observe our reflections and add detail to our portraits.
