Grade 4: Expressive Suns

The fourth graders drew expressive suns using warm and cool colors.  They blended the colors with oil pastels and were encouraged to design a background.  Their finished artworks became part of VRES’s fundraiser: Original Works.  I hope the students enjoyed their products!

Grade 1: Spring Gardens

First graders created spring gardens using oil pastels and watercolors.  This is called a watercolor resist because the pastels resist the paint and show through the design.  They worked hard to “plant” their gardens using their imaginations.

Grade 2: Animal sculptures and habitats

Second graders created 3D clay animal sculptures.  They used under- and gloss-glazes to add color to their ceramics.  Lastly, they drew a habitat for their animal.  We had several habitats in second grade, including woodland, desert, jungle, and even Arctic!  Wonderful work second grade!

Grade 6: A special place

Sixth graders created a drawing of a place that is special to them.  They decided between oil pastels, crayons, or markers as their art medium.  Choosing the right art medium makes all the difference!  These were used as part of the school fundraiser.  Great job sixth graders!
