In 2nd grade the elements of Art that we learnt are Ã¢â‚¬Å“Color and ShapeÃ¢â‚¬Â. Space refers to the distance between elements that creates positive or negative spaces in a composition in an art work. Ã‚Â We are doing a social studies/Art integration project. We looked at many Blue dogs by George Rodrigues (1944-2013) and Paul KleeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s (1879-1940) Cat. We read The Cat and the Bird by Geraldine Elschner. We learnt to draw both blue dog and KleeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cat. Each student completed their painting of a dog/cat portrait on canvas with acrylic paints.
