Picasso Faces

These Picasso Faces were painted by 2nd and 3rd grade students. We focused on using color and shape in abstract art to convey emotion.

Pop Art Tribute

Our principal retired this year and I decided to create a Pop Art Tribute to Tom!
This wall was created by taking a single photograph and converting it to a black line master.  You can do this here:

After I had the black line master of the photograph, I taught my students about Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe Pop Art.
I enlarged the black line master and students used watercolor paints to creatively paint their interpretation of Principal Tom.  Finally I put all the paintings together to display in the front hall of the school.  This project is an amazing way to honor a member of your community.

Kandinsky Circles

Second grade students used warm and cool colors to create a Kandinsky Circles Tree! We used pastels so our colors would be bright. This is a wonderful collaborative art activity to start the school year.
