Kindergarten Rocks!

Amazing stuff has been going on in Kindergarten at the Roberts. We have learned the colors of the rainbow, how to designing turkeys, learned the Primary Colors, made snow people, and Owl Moon night time landscapes! We have spent time drawing, coloring, painting, cutting, and pasting all kinds of materials. We are having a blast and it is only January…stay tuned for more projects throughout the year!

Check out our fall projects!

It was an exciting fall for first graders at the Roberts. We kicked off the year with sailboats near and far where we worked hard on a crayon/watercolor resist. Then we created dancing stick figures as we played with lines – straight, curved, wiggly, contour, etc. We then switched gears to learn about our 3 Primary Colors and how to mix them together to make our Secondary Colors – Orange pumpkins on Green grass with Purple shadows!

Scarecrows and Van Gogh!

This past fall, second graders at the Roberts took planning and design to a whole new level…an awesome level! The students worked so hard to plan and sketch their ideas and then did a beautiful job of coloring and painting in layers to achieve a fantastic finished product. Together we learned about the harvest, line, foreground/middle ground/background, color, texture, landscapes, Vincent Van Gogh, and how taking our time really pays off!

Its been a Fantastic Fall for 3rd Graders at the Roberts!

Owls in Moonlight, Pattern Leaves, and The Color Wheel…oh my! Its been a very busy fall for 3rd graders at the Roberts as we learned about night time colors and watercolor resists, and then lines to make shapes, patterns and designs and finally we finished off with the most difficult of all, creating our own color wheels using just the primary colors alone! All our hard work has really paid off…see for yourself!

4th Grade Projects are in at the Roberts!

As we move into winter at the Roberts, the 4th grade projects are complete and ready to be shown off! We have learned a great deal about line and how to use it to make shapes and patters or how to make a round shape look 3D. And we also learned to use “night time colors” and also complimentary colors. We have had a blast and it shows in our art…take a look!

5th graders at the Roberts have had a terrific fall!

The 5th graders at the Roberts have worked incredibly hard this fall to create three projects: Layered Leaves, Owls, and Monochromatic Cities. Our focus has been on drawing, lines, shapes, patterns, mixing colors to create new colors, and learning to use variations of the same color. We have used a variety of materials ranging from markers and oil pastels, to watercolor paints, crayons, and black pens. Check it out!

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!
