We have learned about Georgia artist, John Cornbread Anderson and his animal folk art. His birds inspired us to make chickens using collage techniques. Then we made drawings to show animals that are local to Smyrna. Ask us about the subject and setting of our artwork!
First grade is starting their Pointillism fish paintings. Some classes are doing solo projects while others are working on collaborating as a team. They are off to a great start and it's amazing to see how quiet and focused they become. I am excited to see how they turn out!
We have been hard at work on our animal drawings for the upcoming fundraiser with Square1art. Kindergarten focused on creating the outlines of animals using shapes. They also learned all about patterns and how patterns help us identify different animals. First grade went a step further and learned how to create a border and fill the space.
