Pumpkin sculptures created by Ms. Hostler & Ms. VonStetten's class. Kindergarten and first grade students created pumpkin sculptures using red and yellow model magic clay. We experimented with using primary colors to create secondary colors. Students discovered that mixing red + yellow clay= Orange clay. After learning how to create a secondary color, next we experimented with sculpting and modeling. Students learned multiple techniques for creating a 3-D Sphere and Cylinder. Last, we used markers to add faces to our pumpkin people.
Check out this cool video that helped us memorize our primary and secondary colors. The song is called "Three Primary Colors" by OK Go
During the Month of September we began learning about the different types of line. Line is an element of art. First we learned about Line Variety. Types of Line Variety:
(Thick Lines, Thin Lines, Rough lines, Smooth lines, Broken lines, and solid lines) We used these lines to create symmetrical greek pottery. Below is a little video about greek pottery.
Take a look at the greek pottery created by Ms. Fennell's 5th grade class, Ms. McGinnes' 4th grade class, and Ms. Johnson's 3rd grade class.
