The second graders had a sub last week and worked on drawing portraits while I was gone. This week they will be working on their Fall themed still life. They should be practicing at home whenever possible drawing direct observations. We went over this in class- it is simply drawing what you see and trying to make it look real. We broke the still life down into shapes to make it easier. Pictures to come soon!
One of the other Kindergarten classes, two first grade classes, and one second grade class will be starting a fall tree painting this week and next week. They also had a sub in art and worked on drawing from a story starter. The story starter was: When I got to the pumpkin patch, I saw the BIGGEST, Smelliest, Funniest… and they had to draw out what they thought it was. A few of those are hanging in the hall and the rest will be sent home this week and next.
I am excited that my pre-assessments for the Student Learning Outcomes are done and we can get down to making art! Woop Woop!
