1st Grade Artwork
1st grade students were inspired by the simple style of the artist Charley Harper. Students learned about directional lines while they painted horizontal and diagonal branches and they used a stamping technique to create the pine needles and snow. Realistic backyard birds like cardinals, chickadees, blue jays and wrens were added to the scene as the focal point.
1st grade students learned about Arctic animals and used this knowledge to help them create a realistic landscape in the art room. Students learned about SPACE and how to make one animal look near and the other animals look far away by drawing them different sizes. After watching a video about the Northern Lights, students had the choice to paint the beautiful colors of this phenomenon in the sky.
