After learning about our 3 Primary Colors, the kindergarten at the Roberts took what we have learned about cutting and shapes and made bright Primary Color Collages!
This past September, grades 1-5 at the Roberts worked together to create one giant piece of abstract art celebrating our “Roberts Community” – each student designed a name card and when we put them all together, this is what we got!
And I had some fabulous 5th grade helpers to help put it all together.
After learning about the size of objects near and far, first graders at the Roberts drew sailboats near and far and also added in a background to help us imagine where these boats were sailing away to. We finished off our pencil and crayon drawings with watercolors to create a watercolor resist. The white crayon was the most exciting surprise of all!
We read “Where The Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak together as a class. Students looked at the illustrations and observed the similarities and differences between the wild things. After some brainstorming and a lesson on how to use oil pastels, students created their own original own wild things. Students even had a chance to share what type of noise their wild thing might make!
After learning about the “harvest” and discussing different types of farms, second graders at the Roberts drew scarecrows in different types of gardens. We payed special attention to the time of day and foreground, middleground, and background to make sure our scarecrow art was amazing!
