Grade 3 – Van Gogh’s Irises

In grade 3 at the Roberts, students studied and explored Irises, painted by Vincent Van Gogh and then took what they learned and created their own Irises. Students demonstrated their understanding of color by layering paint and oil pastel to create their amazing spring time art. Check it out!

GIANT FARM ANIMALS!

First Graders at the Roberts learned about shape and form in a whole new way as they worked together to build and design giant farm animals out of cardboard. We also learned about texture and color as we painted and glued materials varying from cardboard, construction paper, yarn, and cotton balls.

The results were GIANT!

Reworking It!

20130510-102042.jpg
Students in Mrs. Bello’s class did a wonderful job using painted paper scraps ands recycled materials to represent fun farm life. Teachers and staff sent in old cereal boxes to create these animals, inspired by the Recycled Rooster lesson found at Art Projects for Kids.

We decided to pump up the image with oil pastel and bold color. Students spent so much time on these animals, and it shows! Excellent work grade 1!
