Welcome, Fall

It’s the first official day of Fall and things are really rolling in the art room!


Kindergarten artists are finishing their Mondrian-inspired collages with horizontal and vertical lines.  We are using cardboard to print the lines on the shapes we added last week.  This is a good reminder to send in an art shirt for your beginning artist 🙂

We used a big fuzzy stuffed snake to practice making straight horizontal and vertical lines!

First Grade

First grade artists are beginning to work on a fall tree landscape.  We used warm colors to paint a variety of lines for our autumn sky.

Second Grade

Second graders are working on a patriotic painting inspired by Brazilian-born painter Romero Britto. We are using bright colors and a variety of patterns!

Third and Fourth Grades

Third and fourth graders stuffed their new sketchbooks with a collection of art activities and sketching paper.  We are so excited to use these throughout the year!

Fifth Grade

Fifth grade artists are working on a painting of the Statue of Liberty also inspired by Romero Britto.  I’m hoping these paintings will be finished in time for our Veteran’s Day program!

Don’t forget: Our shrinky-dink pins house pins will be available for purchase tomorrow at Glen Allen Day!  Proceeds will benefit the Houston Food Bank.
