1st grade, Art Cafe, Ms Slom

By in ,

Our Annual school gala is on February 25th and each grade level creates beautiful Art projects for the silent Auction. The art projects are available for purchase at the gala.  Our 1st graders finished their Art project for the gala and are now working on a social studies/Art projects. We started off by learning about the Chinese and read a beautiful book called Brush of the Gods by Lenore Look. We then practiced using Chinese bamboo paint brushes (just like the artist as a youngster in the book) with black liquid watercolors and then painted a Chinese dragon on colored paper. We moved on to look at Mexican art and learnt about Frida Kahlo we are now working on a drawing of a lizard and will be painting it in bright Mexican folk colors.
