Kindergarten students painted themselves wearing winter clothes with Mrs. Thomas. This was the first time Kindergarten painted with tempera in the art room. They practiced several painting techniques using the brush. They did a great job with Mrs. Thomas!
Third graders looked at the artwork of Frida Kahlo and discussed several symbols that are representative of their culture. They created these lovely self-portraits with Mrs. Thomas using several painting techniques. I especially enjoy the bright colors and patterns.
I am back from maternity leave and am ready to post new homeART assignments for the month of February! From now on I will post two homeART assignments per month in lieu of weekly assignments. This way students have an ENTIRE month to complete one, or both, lessons.
For the month of February:
1. Illustrate an important moment in history
2. Research 3 facts about the artist Faith Ringgold
* Remember, homeART is still optional. You can turn in homeART to Mrs. Custer on your designated art day.
Have fun and as always, thank you for your participation!
