1st Grade Artwork
In first grade students will be reviewing concepts and terms learned last year in kindergarten. We will taking a more in-depth look at Line Types, Color Families, Shapes, Forms, Texture and Subject Matters. This year first graders will be using paint, oil pastel, colored pencils, paper mache, weaving, and even shaving cream and glue. First grade is an important year because it is an opportunity to review concepts and terms, as well as a chance to use them in a more mature method to create beautiful artwork.
First grade artists are learning about color families for this next artwork. Students used a variety of materials to create interesting papers in either warm or cool colors. Then students used stencils to turn those papers into a variety of mountains, First graders then created beautiful backgrounds by using chalk pastels in the opposite color family as their mountains. Finally, students created landscapes by overlapping their mountains starting at the top and moving towards the bottom so that the mountains looked realistic. These artworks are a beautiful reminder that art vocabulary is all around us,
