Oh, the things we've been doing! Most recently, 1st grade students have been introduced to cool and warm colors. Students are making large bugs that explore line, texture and cool colors through painting. They are big and cool- and I don't mean just their colors!
Second grade students have been introduced to the artwork of Wayne Thiebault. Thiebault is a contemporary painter living currently in California. He paints different subjects, but one thing he paints a lot of is dessert! Students learned how to draw cylinders and then they turned them into cakes. Students then paint the cakes using a type of color called a tint. A tint is a color mixed with white (pink is a famous tint). Students are also revisiting color mixing and learning how to make brown. Kids love mixing paint. I'm enjoying spending my time helping these young artists explore their creative sides.
Last night my husband and I went to Paddock family bingo night. It was fun to see a lot of you there. I was impressed by the many different kinds of pajamas I saw. I was also impressed by the dancing skills of my young friends. Thank you to the girls who let me join them in their dance routine- it was very fun.
Thanks for reading. I'll keep my fingers crossed that I will post more often in the future!
