Our Kindergarten students recently completed their paintings of winter birds. Students were taught that by using the elements of shape, artists can draw almost anything.
In first grade we have been studying tree frogs. Students designed their own tree frog using a variety of patterns, shapes, lines and colors. Soon some of our first grade students will be working on tree frog sculptures.
The second grade students have just completed a mixed media picture of tropical birds. Students used oil pastels, watercolors, tissue paper and sparkle glue to add a finishing touch to their birds.
Our third grade students recently completed another project to go along with our jungle theme for this year. The students had the challenge of designing a chameleon using the elements of line, color, shape and pattern.
Recently, our fourth grade students had a great time building sculptures in Art Maker-space. Here are just a few of their creations.
In closing, I’m looking for volunteers to begin the process of mounting the art work for our annual art show in May. I already have quite a load of projects ready to be mounted and name tagged. Please consider helping out. It is a great way to be involved with your child’s education and it’s one of the easiest jobs, as no special talent is needed other than the ability to use a glue gun. The mounting can be done preferably in the art room any time during the day, or at home once I have shown you what to do. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help make the last HES art show the best ever!
