4th grade Snow resist 

Fourth grade got another lesson in how to draw trees using the “Y” technique. Can you see the “Y’s”? Then they used white oil pastel to make the ground and the snow in the sky, and finally painted the entire paper with blue/purple watercolor. Beautiful!

5th grade Winter Prints

We brainstormed to think about words that came to mind when I told them “winter”. I showed them several Googled images of “winter images”, and they sketched out their ideas. The next day, they drew their sketches onto their styrofoam plates and then printed! Way to go!

3rd grade Polar Bears

These projects are so super cute! They were so excited to find out about what a resist meant!

Family Portraits 

As part of our self-awareness unit, the 1st graders made family portraits. The heads were pre-drawn using the inside of the masking tape roll, and then we talked about overlapping so the kids would draw complete bodies for a more realistic looking portraits.
