April showers

Kindergarten did some really cute rainy day drawings. We read the story "Rain Drop Plop", then students drew themselves under an umbrella. We used oil pastel to add color & a white pastel for raindrops. Then students did a blue wash over the picture to show our raindrop resist! Fun lesson & I love the personality that shows in the kids art!





Georgia O'Keeffe lesson

I have a wonderful student teacher right now- Ms. Hillenburg. She has been working with 5th grade  in groups to create these giant paper flowers. The results are beautiful & the kids worked great together to create them!

Native American Sunset Art

I've done a unit on native Americans with k-2 this year and students have enjoyed learning about the culture. We read the book The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush and used it as our inspiration to create these beautiful sunset paintings.
