1st and 2nd Grade Art

We enjoyed the gallery opening on Wednesday and the students showed their developing skills at talking critically about their work and the work of their peers. I heard several helpful comments and suggestions from the artists. While creating art is certainly important, learning how to view and talk about art and the creative process is equally valuable. I am trying to build the skill of communication and critical process through the gallery talks. I hope you will all take the time to view the work on display in the lobby, it is a fantastic display of their creative work. We also began a new project based on figure drawing. The students created a figure drawing book using the posable wooden mannequins. I hope you enjoyed seeing their drawings and will indulge them if they ask you to pose for them!
