Hi All,

Here is a look at what we are working on for this week:

Kindergarten: The students in these classes will read the story The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.  We will use the illustrations in these stories as inspiration as we create our own winter landscape drawings.  This week, each student will plan his / her drawing in pencil.

1st Grade: These students will continue creating paintings inspired by interiors painted by the artist Henri Matisse.  This week, each student will continue to plan his / her inetrior in pencil.

2nd Grade: The 2nd Graders will continue learning portrait photography. This week, each student will continue by making a sketch of his / her own self-portrait photograph.  Each self portrait must use the student’s facial expression, and pose to give us clues about the mood.

3rd Grade: These students will continue learning about nonobjective art (art that does not try to represent a person, a place, or a thing).  This week, each student will begin using watercolor paints to paint his / her drawing.

4th Grade:  The students in these classes will continue learning about art made by the Inuit, a Native American group who lives in the areas near the North Pole. This week, each student will continue to create an animal drawing.  Each drawing must use hatching or cross-hatching to show the texture of the animal’s fur, feathers, or scales.
