2nd Graders learned about portraiture and created their very own self portraits. We began by drawing faces, being sure to include details like eyes, a nose, a mouth, ears, and hair. Students chose a color scheme and used tempera cakes to create vibrant, bold, paintings.
This project was a great review of color scheme which 2nd graders have learned a lot about this year. It is also a great precursor to our next (and last!) project this year which will be based on Faith Ringgold’s Tar Beach.
Here is a sneak peak of whats going on in the art room:
K will be making Bugs on a Rug by weaving and stamping
1st will be creating a woven alligator
2nd is making an imaginative “quilt”
3rd learned about street art and will be constructing a Space Invader Mosaic
4th are creating a radial design by weaving on a CD
5th will be weaving on a cup
Please keep your fingers crossed that we will be able to complete everything — there are only 4 weeks of school left and with Field Day and a million other things happening, time is flying by!
