This week we made paintings that took us several days to complete. First we used painter’s tape to make shapes. Then, we painted those shapes different colours.
When they were dry, we pulled off the tape. I heard shouts of delight all over the classroom as the students revealed their gorgeous paintings.
Each student’s painting is on his or her blog, but here is one final product as a teaser.
Finishing off our unit on exploring colours and feelings, students got to choose the medium they wanted, to convey an emotion of their choosing.
Check the students’ blogs to see their choices and the feelings they demonstrated with their art.
After learning about the primary colours, the children tried some colour mixing. It looks like magic!
Today we followed the example of Vashti in Peter Reynolds’ book The Dot and made our marks. We made our dots on paper
and on our iPads.
