Long Lost Art Lessons...(last week of school)

During the last week of school, K and first grade students used crapas to create beautiful ice cream sundaes in honor of summer. The blending made them look realistic and delicious! Second graders created "dream worlds" using recycled large paper and crapas, markers, colored pencils, and/or crayons (last day of art class :) Candy and chocolate worlds to "sport-land" and a world with a butterfly tree and bubbles for furniture, each picture and idea were amazing and incredibly creative! I loved the passion each student had about their dream world. Third grade students reviewed Picasso's art and created realistic and abstract faces. They had so much fun with the abstract side! Lastly, the upper levels wrote a sentance or phrase using block letters creating positive and negative space. It was great practice! The designs created were also wonderful. I'm glad I found the last week of lessons before the first day of school....:)
