Mondrian Inspired Art

This week I introduced Piet Mondrian who is famous for this style of art.
The students brought in canvases so we could reproduce this art.  First they drew out their grid, which gave them a good lesson on horizontal, vertical and parallel lines.  Then they needed to randomly paint their squares and rectangles.  Once dry they needed to put in their black lines using electrical tape.  Some are still working on that step.

Check back next week for the finished project!

Fall Trees

This week while we collected everyone's canvases we did a fun project.  This project involved paint and straws and lots of hot air!  They needed to drip their paint and blow it where they wanted their tree to go.

The finished projects were so fall!

Kindergarten - 4th Grade
We enjoyed this very messy owl project. The kindergartners had a pre-drawn owl to cover with their ripped paper but the first through fourth graders had to draw their own owls. They did a great job! Enjoy!

We also are working on a cool calendar project for the holidays. Watch for more information. The students are very excited.
