1st grade Color Mixing Birds

1st graders learned the primary and secondary colors songs while we discovered what colors mix to make other colors. We also read the book "Mouse Paint." We painted either cool or warm colored backgrounds for sky. We then mixed our own colors and drew patterns into the paint. The next day, we cut and glued the secondary color panted papers into a beautiful bird with googly eyes and feathers!

5th Grade Jim Dine

5th Grade artists are studying the life and work of the artist Jim Dine just in time for Valentine's Day! They looked at how he used pattern, repetition, form, and the shape of a heart.
