Pow Wow with Kindergarten

We learned about painting with natural dyes and painting with paint made from nature.

2nd Grade Still Life

This was a wonderful project that was made up of  several I projects.  First, we discusses symmetry and symmetrical balance in art.  Then we made a symmetrical vase. We talked about pattern and did scratch art on vases. Then we talked about texture when we painted our backgrounds.  Then we moved to collage for our flowers and finally oil pastel blending on our fruit. Whew!!!!!  But aren't they beautiful??

Cute kitties

My kindergarten class is learning how shape and line create images.

Collage Still Life

My 2nd grade students have had multiple mini lessons with this project.  First we learned about symmetry with the vase.  Then we observed placement in composition to creat depth.  Finally we learned about collage.  It took endurance on their part.


These students created personal Crests that symbolized themselves or their families.
