1st graders are learning about fall colors and monoprinting (painting only half of the paper, then folding it to create the same picture on the other side) while they create these beautiful fall tree prints.
1st graders are starting off our virtual school year playing a drawing game called Roll a Bird. WE are using a dice to determine which shapes and lines are going to be used to create the different parts of our bird. Then we are talking about details and backgrounds before finishing our artwork!
1st grade students are learning about how each season looks different. They are also learning about the horizon line, and using it in their drawings of each season. The drawings are colored with colored pencil and mounted along with a calendar page.
1st graders learned about cityscapes, and what makes a city different from a town. They used overlapping rectangles to create their buildings, and added windows and doors. Next they learned about the primary colors (red, yellow, blue) and how they are used to create all of the other colors. They are working on painting their cityscapes using only these colors.
First graders are starting this year with a review of lines. They are tracing their hands and apples, and filling both with line patterns.
first graders learned to draw a seahorse using simple shapes. They created an under the sea world and then learned about blending watercolors to paint both their seahorse and background. They added their seahorse to their world and used collage materials to finish them off!
1st graders worked with our SUNY New Paltz student teacher, Rebecca Spodick, to create these collage tapestries based on the artwork of El Anutsue.
