2nd grade artists are currently working on building camera sculptures out of all found materials, including cardboard, cups, paper towel rolls, corks and whatever else we found in the art studio closet! They are coming out amazing and we cannot wait to share!
The artists in 2nd grade collaborated with other classes in the school to create this winter mural. They made all the houses and community buildings in this mural using collage techniques!
PAINTED PORTRAITS OF ENDANGERED ANIMALS
Students read and looked closely at the book Hello, Hello by Brendan Wenzel with Ms. L and Beth. We discussed the poetic and beautiful ways Wenzel illustrated the book to showcase the special qualities in these animals. We also talked about the endangered animals he chose to illustrate. Students each chose an endangered or vulnerable animal to paint a portrait of.
2nd grade artists first painted their own unique papers, thinking about texture and warm/ cool colors.
They then wove in layers of various types of papers to create these woven works of art.
