Grade 1 & 2 Autumn Trees

The Grade 1 & 2 students made Autumn Trees to be displayed in the school’s main corridor during Autumn.  They learnt about warm colours such as red, orange and yellow, and they used these colours for the background.  The trees really stand out because they were painted in black, and this looks very effective!  In addition, the students used glitter to make their artwork look brilliant!

Here are some pictures of the artwork:

Grades 1 & 2 – Organic and Geometrical Shapes

The Grade 1s and 2s have been exploring and learning about organic and geometrical shapes in art.  They made artwork using a combination of these shapes on an A3 piece of coloured paper.  Using their cutting skills, the students cut out different shapes out of coloured paper to stick onto the paper.  They mirrored the shapes with the paper that they cut it from to create stunning artwork!

Here are some pictures of the great artwork that the children made:
