Art Cafe, 2nd Grade, Ms. Slom

By in ,

We are now working on a fun project that focuses on “line and pattern”.

The students have made big birds out of poster board and are painting and decorating them in tempera paints. Once this project is complete  2nd grade will be focusing on the element of Art “Color and Space”. Space refers to the distance between elements that creates positive or negative spaces in a composition in an art work. This will be doing a social studies/Art integration project. We will look at many Blue dogs by George Rodrigue (1944-2013)and Paul Klee’s (1879-1940) Cat, and read The Cat and the Bird by Geraldine Elschner. We will learn to draw both blue dog and Klee’s cat. Each student will then choose to painting either a dog or cat portrait on canvas with acrylic paints.שנה טובה ומתוקה
