All five of the 4th grade classes are doing different projects so there is more variety for the show in January. Here they are!
Monday: Rooster Molas
Bringing a bit of culture into the Western lesson, 4th grade learned about Panamanian Molas, and then made their own! This lesson reviewed different types of lines, and reinforced hand to eye coordination, as the student followed along with the teacher as she drew.
This project began much like the winter project these guys made in the 3rd grade. But then we Rodeo-ized it! This lesson reviewed using water color, an oil pastel resist and then layering black oil pastel for the cowperson silhouette.
This group used watercolor first for their backgrounds, and then painted trees with acrylic, added the corn field with oil pastels, and the details on the tractor with a permanent maker. Talk about mixed media!
This group painted their sunsets using watercolor and then added their roosters and fence using oil pastel.
This group chose what they wanted to use to put in their barns, and then how they wanted to put the color in.
