2nd Grade Artwork
This year in art second grade artists will be exploring a variety of art making techniques including: painting, weaving, sculpting, printing and blending. These techniques will include the following art materials: paint, clay, markers and oil pastels. In second grade students will also be learning about more advanced terms and concepts including Texture (see and feel), Balance, Subject Matters and different Art Tools. These projects are an opportunity for students to express themselves using a variety of art materials and tools.
Second grade artists are reviewing their line type knowledge for this first project of the year. Students are creating crazy giraffe portraits that demonstrate all types of lines. To begin, students traced their shoe to give themselves the perfect giraffe head. Then students added tons of details including: eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hair bows, glasses, on and on. To add color students used oil pastel to color in each detail. Finally, students added watercolor over the oil pastel to create a resist. For the background, students created their own stamps by using Model Magic and line types. Then second grade artists stamped over a beautiful watercolor background that students created using the tertiary color family. Overall, this project reviewed art concepts and introduced new vocabulary terms to second grade artists.
