Mixed Up Texture Animals
2nd grade students reviewed texture and the technique of crayon rubbing. They then drew their own mixed up animals and added various textures using crayon rubbing. They then added watercolor to create a watercolor resist effect. Finally, we discussed habitat and each student created a habitat for their animal using cut paper. We also discussed the use of a horizon line in the habitat.
The first, second and third grade students worked together to create these paper mosaics. Each group added neat rows of paper tiles and before long these large hearts will filled with beautiful color !
Students learned about printmaking by exploring first with fingerprints. They then tried printing with found objects before combining these prints together to create their own robot prints.
Second grade looked at photos of cityscapes and talked about the shapes and lines they could find. We then practiced using rulers to create straight lines and geometric shapes. They painted their drawings with watercolor paint and added marker. It looks like we may have some future architects!
2nd Graders welcomed Spring by making kites and filling each quadrant with a different pattern. We reviewed the different types of lines before using them to make our colorful patterns with crayon.
Paint Blot Monsters
Second graders reviewed their color mixing and explored a new way to paint by blowing watered down tempera paint with straws. They then used their careful cutting skills to cut small circles for eyes. They used crayon to add other details to their creative, blot monsters!
