What a beautiful start to Art for Grade 6 students. Thanks to @mrsallainart this idea was perfect for the Grade 6 students, who are currently reading Wonder in their classrooms. Students chose and drew a face outline similar to their own, outlined with permanent pen, and filled in with warm and cool water colours. To create a special effect on the face, students added small amounts of salt to the wet water colours. Once dry students thought deep and hard about words to best describe themselves and fill the page with these in different fonts and styles. Each is so individual and I was so proud of their thought process and outcome. Such an inspiring display to have.
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:
