We are getting into the REAL stuff now!

Art to Remember is being finished up and classes are now moving on to regular art projects. The emphasis this year will be on the elements of art and the principles of design. Below are Kindergarten students learning about LINE. STRAIGHT,CURVY,WAVY, ZIG-ZAG, AND BROKEN. We also are discussing line DIRECTIONS. HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL, DIAGONAL. Later on, these colorful sheets of LINES will be used in a collage about shapes. Be on the lookout!

Below, my Second Grade Students are learning about RADIAL BALANCE! These are patterns that radiate out from the center, in all directions.

More to come as we move into other exciting projects.

Do you use the simile, "like the spokes of a wheel" with them when discussing radial design?

Just curious!!

I love all the beautiful art work I see displayed in the building. Keep up the great work kiddos!

Radial design always makes the most beautiful display for our Art Extravaganza in the spring! Love, Mrs. Morris and Mrs. Metzger's class
