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.

Letter Art

I am trying a new lesson using the artist Stuart Davis as inspiration. The kids have really enjoyed playing around with letters and I used it to teach positive and negative space, composition, and resist techniques with oil pastel.
We simply traced dye cut letters and numbers with oil pastel, students colored in interesting spaces with overlapping letters and negative areas. some chose to add patterns.
Here are some of the works in progress, final pictures will be on display in May at our annual Arts in school night!

Youth Art Month

March is youth art month for our school system & it's time for the annual art display at the Clarksville Montgomery
County Public Library. It was extremely hard to choose because I can only pick a few pieces & have 1200 students!
Here are the pictures of our rossview artists' work...

Super heroe project

Third grade has had a ton of fun designing their own super heroes. I found this awesome idea for a bulletin board display to showcase some of their work.
