Mrs. Shanley- Roberts

Hey there!

October has been super exciting at the Roberts as we explore one of the most important elements of art: LINE! Line is the most basic element of art, the foundation upon which all other elements are built. Every single project we create uses line in some way – from our sketches to shapes, patterns, designs, and so much more. This month we are drawing, tracing, cutting, and painting lines.

In November we will switch gears a bit as we study COLOR. Every year we study color: Primary, Secondary, Intermediate, Complementary, Monochromatic, etc. We will continue to experiment and learn how to make and mix colors, what makes colors warm and cool, and how to create value with tints and shades.

I will be posting some of our fall art work soon, but I wanted to post a few highlights from last spring. First is the mural created by the second graders last May/June. They learned about Pointalism and how to create art from thousands of dots…it’s beautiful!

    • Hi there,
      I am sorry it has taken so long! I have been waiting for students to bring back their permission slips so I know what I can and can’t post. Artwork will be posted within the next week and then pretty regularly throughout the year. Thanks for your interest!
