Third Grade Barn Paintings

Some third graders have finished their barn paintings. They are lovely and could go on a Christmas card!  The final step included outlining, and one spot of glitter! Thanks Deep Space Sparkle for the lesson idea!

Couldn't Resist!

I think I have an new avatar thanks to my fifth grade artist, Frances Bell!
Love it Frances!!!!

Third Grade Painted Pea Pods

We did a lot of work on facial expressions prior to creating our pea pods with expressions. Each Pea had to have a different expression. Many of us have grown Peas in our gardens.  These artists went all out! Today they painted their mini sculptures. The only requirement I gave them was to mix colors to create as many GREENS as they could dream up. Some added stripes and polka dots to their pods as well. It was a really fun class today!

Fifth Grade Van Gogh Irises

Fifth graders are"rockin'" this painting project. They have learned a lot about flowers as they study them to draw and  paint. They also are learning about color mixing as they double dip 2 colors to create a new color. These paintings are truly stunning! I am so proud of them!

Second Grade Clay Lions

Second grade listened to the book "Snow Lion". It is a wonderful book about friendship. They drew lions and wrote about their lions. Then we created clay pinch pot lions. Here the students are painting their bisque creations.

Kinder Sleeping Quilts

This project has been lots of fun and lots of stages. We have read a lot of quilt stories, and gained
" I Love to Read" minutes. I have shown one of my own baby's quilts.  Finally we have assembled the sleeping self portrait quilt picture.

Second Grade Woven Animal Heads

These are just the cutest kids, and cutest projects. No more needs to be said.
