1st Grade students spent Friday's class painting papers! It's a messy but super fun thing to do in Art.
We were learning about Author and Illustrator Eric Carle and how he does his illustrations. He paints his own papers and then uses them in his collage illustrations.
Next week this class will be using their painted papers to create a collage inspired by Eric Carle's Very Busy Spider.
Mrs. Tague's class began painting their own Starry Night pictures today inspired by Vincent Van Gogh. Even though they just started them I can already see some very creative things!
Third grade students are learning a little about artist Vincent Van Gogh. We took a look at some of his paintings paying special attention to the lines we saw in them. Students took turns drawing them on the Smartboard.
Then we discussed what kind of Starry Night picture we might choose to make. A starry night over our house, a farm, a football field were just some of the ideas they came up with. Students spent the last part of class sketching out their own version of Starry Night. Next class we will begin painting - Yay!
Washington has been my "Home" school for many years now. I enjoy teaching all the different students who make up this diverse school. I have taught a multitude of lessons in this building and have learned just as much from all of the students.
