Winter Happenings in the Art Room: Kinder, Fifth Grade and Third Grade

 Kinder is creating amazing patterns that will be transformed from two dimensional pieces of paper into  three dimensional sculptures!

Fifth Grade has just finished studying the great Renaissance artist Leonardo Da Vinci, and have made horse sculptures out of clay.  Here are sneak peeks of students painting glazes onto their bisque-fired horses; next step, another round in the kiln for the glaze firing!

 Third grade artists are learning all about perspective and depth in two-dimensional artworks, as well as the art element of VALUE.  Here students are creating a winterscape, and using size and color to show depth.  They are mixing lighter and dark values of gray, and learning how to place objects in the background, middle ground, and fore ground.
Check back next week for an update on First, Second, and Fourth Grade artists!
