  • 6th Grade Dragon Eyes

    Posted by Laura Hubbard on 10/17/2017

    6th grade students are currently studying the elements of art and are working towards creating an effective composition that uses at least 5 elements of art.  We are focusing on COLOR, SHAPE, LINE, PATTERN, and TEXTURE.  We began by using our chromebooks to research dragon eyes.  Students conducted a google image search and saved images for inspiration.  Working from our saved images as well as our imaginations, we drew a macro view of a dragon eye.  This week will will begin experimenting with color to bring the dragon eyes to life!

  • Spooky Houses

    Posted by Laura Hubbard on 10/12/2017

    Mrs. Manning's class recently created "spooky houses".  Students enjoyed listening to the story "Inside a House that is Haunted" and were inspired to create some creepy houses!  After listening to the story, students were given a variety of supplies and began the creative process.  We first explored LINES which is the basis of the first unit of study in the art curriculum.  Students used a white oil pastel to draw as many curvy, loops and crazy lines possible.  Liquid colors were painted over the lines to make them "appear".  Students practiced fine motor skills and made choices when selecting stickers to add to their creations.  Check out our hard work!
