1st Gr. Abstract Paintings

Abstract Paintings
This is the first part to a project where students painted two abstract paintings.  They will later select one to be cut up and used in a different artwork.  Students experimented using the paintbrush in different ways to make these Gorgeous paintings!  I am just in love with these!!

Awesome job first grade!!!

1st Gr. Texture Caterpillars

Textured Caterpillars

For our first project, we read the book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. Then students learned about caterpillars and how to use texture, pattern, and color in an artwork.  Each student created a piece of the caterpillar by coloring on top of textured plastic sheets, cutting out a circle, drawing and cutting out legs and then putting all of the pieces together to create one Huge class caterpillar!  (Each circle is 8" in diameter)

Awesome job 1st grade!
