Apple picking time is here! What better way to incorporate the colors and sights of the season than through painting!
Mrs. Bello’s first grade students have been hard at work over the past few weeks. Students were given a look into the life of French painter, Paul Cezanne. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful online resource at the Metropolitan Museum of Art which made our learning experience richer through the use of technology. Students studied various types of apples, from Red Delicious to Granny Smith. We looked at color size and shape, as well as how we could create our own still-life of this gorgeous fruit. Students painted their apples, added pastel detail, prepared backgrounds, cut and arranged apples and still had time to complement their classmates on a job well done! I am so proud of their hard work.
