Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade Autumn Scarecrows

This fall, the students learned about how to create both a collage and a landscape painting all in one project! First, they  used crayons to draw wavy and straight lines to create rolling fields. They then used watercolor paint to add color to their fall landscape using the colors that you see during the fall. The students then cut the shapes of a shirt, pants, a head and whatever else they chose out of patterned paper. They glued them together on their landscape painting to create a scarecrow in a field!

7th and 8th Grade Impressionist Trees

The 7th and 8th graders learned about Impressionist painter Claude Monet and how Monet painted what he saw in nature and captured the light and color that he observed. The students spent some time outside and drew a tree from observation. Once it got a little too cold and windy to be outside, they took their canvases inside and worked on painting their tree in the Impressionist style using dabs of paint and many layers of color. They did a wonderful job with their paintings!!
