Raise Your Hand If You’re Ready For Art!

Oh we are SO ready for art! Two weeks in and these K-5th graders have been ARTing their little tails off!
We are learning about the Elements of Art, specifically Lines. So we first watched a video about lines. Then we watched another.

Then… we made ART!

K-1 Learn Different Types of lines after tracing their hands. (Writing skills)

2-4th Grades repeatedly write their names making sure they overlap in different directions.

5th graders watched these videos to introduce them to Zentangle. (Part 1 & 2)

The second week we watched a video on the Elements of Art, since we would be doing more than just lines.

And then we did this!

Kinder & 1st graders add watercolor to their crayon  line drawings.

One must always be careful when telling a Kindergartener to "paint your hand" or you may get this. :)
