Kindergarten is Art-Smart

WARM and COOL Colors...


Complementary Colors...

and Positive and Negative Space!

Wildlife Illustrations

First grade learns to pay attention to details while drawing animals.

First Grade Dreams Big

Some of the first grade students finished their wildlife illustrations early, so they used watercolor, oil pastel, and crayon to illustrate their dreams. 

Second Grade Gives a Hoot

Take in two giant eyefuls of these beautiful owls designed by the 2nd grade class!  To create these masterpieces, we learned about using patterns of colors, lines, and shapes to create order and places of interest in our art work.

Some thoughts that were shared during our process:
"Owls remind me of grandparents because they are wise."
"I can use the pattern from my shoe for my owl's belly."
"My owl is stretching on his branch."
"Owls come out at night because they are nocturnal."
"Owls make me think of how God watches over us even when we are sleeping."

If you do not see your owl here, it is probably still in progress!  Your artwork will join the flock as soon as it is complete.
