I hope everyone is ready to learn about art now that spring break is over! Before spring break, students were learning how to draw movement and other symbols to help them with illustrating and cartooning. Students at Paddock do a lot of drawing to go along with their writings during Writer's Workshop. We practiced some new drawing techniques and then students created their own comic strip. In the next few weeks Paddock students will be learning about Printmaking and Weaving. Both of these art forms are quite possibly new concepts for our young students. The learning will be astounding! I am also working on organizing art works to send home. I know everyone is anxious to show off all of their fantastic artwork.
