All of the classes, 5th down to Kindergarten made flowers to go into the Van Gogh-esque flower pots on the bulletin board outside the art room. I’m trying to prevent the constant draw, erase, draw erase, by explaining what to do when they make a “mistake”. I think the flowers turned out great! Great job … Continue reading
3rd graders have done quite a few projects with Pablo Picasso, so instead of faces, the used instruments. They were instructed to draw their instruments huge filling up the space of the box. (This is something they still struggle with) Then they traced their lines with a permanent marker then paint with watercolor.
Here are the results!
Good job 3rd graders
5th grade’s chosen artist was Van Gogh. They learned about perspective, and it was a geometry heavy lesson. Very challenging for them to get away from their old way of thinking things looked! We ran out of time, so not many got to add color. But here’s one example.
This is Art Club’s second year, and I try to make sure we visit an art musuem every year. The Menil Collection is a great collection of art from antiquity to modern, and all for free. They don’t allow photography inside, but you can just see the joy on Art Club’s faces!
Every once in a while, some of the classes will finish a project ahead of some of the others. When that happens, the completed classes get to have Art Stations! It’s one of their favorite activities. The room is just completely a buzz with creation! Take a look!
Art Rocks Y’all!

Using a metallic crayon, they first drew the painting, using directional lines, just like the master painter himself. Then … Continue reading
