1st and 2nd Grade Art
The students finished their self portrait projects this past week and created many imaginative and successful pieces in a variety of material. The first portrait was drawn from memory, the second using observational skills, the third was constructed using found objects and the final portrait was created with materials found in nature. The complete portrait exploration is now hanging in the first floor hallway, I hope you can take some time to explore the creative work. We have begun our sculptural unit and the students are working with various found objects to create 3-dimensional inventions and experimenting with new ways of connecting objects. The process of exploring new methods of building is so important at this stage of the artist's development and the students love figuring out different ways of working. We will continue with the sculptural work for the remainder of the year.
