Our new first graders are enjoying more time in the art room. We started the year with my favorite dancing giraffes.

We just finished our MC Escher study this week and wrapped it up with "Eyes". They all did a fabulous job! I did these with second through eighth grade and found the youngers did just as well as the olders! Maybe better! *wink*
Maggie, Grade Five
Katerina, Grade Two
Christian, Grade Four
First grade did some yummy ice cream cones, to work on their cutting skills.
Before Escher, we did Marc Chagall and we did some "dreamy" drawings. The students had to pick out a slip from three buckets that told them a location, an action and an animal. With these words they had to draw a dreamy picture.
squirrel, jumping, at the movies
woolly mammoth, singing, in New York City
an owl, sleeping, underwater
And back to MC Escher, the eighth graders had to make their own tessellations. It was harder than they thought it would be.

We've been to school a big 11 days since my last post on November 29. We've had snow, snow and more snow here in East Tennessee and we just don't handle snow real well. Two inches can shut us down and it did! So I'm going to show off some of the art we did manage to squeeze in.
Second Grade Scarecrows
Renoir "Movement" PaintingsTheir paintings needed to be of dancers and show that they were moving.
The kindergartners painted some Mayflowers.
Not sure why they are sideways.
We did some really pretty poinsettia paintings. Too bad we never went back to school after they were done so they never made it home before Christmas!
We've started the year off studying Marc Chagall and made some pretty crayon melted stain glass windows.
