1st and 2nd Grade Art

We finished the Aboriginal painting project this week with great success! The artists loved painting with q-tips and worked diligently dotting their designs with the 5 colors. They are hanging in the hallway by their classroom. We had some time to work on the bird designs for our next unit in art. The students are going to create birds sitting in nests using clay. We will make a pinch pot nest and sculpt the bird sitting on the edge of the nest.  I thought it would be helpful for them to study a picture of a bird to better understand the proportions and parts of a bird before the clay work began. The drawings were so lovely, they wanted to hang them in the hallway as well! I love that they are excited to share their work with everyone, thank you all for waiting for the art work to come home to you.
