Kindergarten: These students will continue creating Spring landscapes.

1st Grade: Students in these classes will continue learning about the artist Pablo Picasso. This week, we will learn about Picasso’s Rose Period and each student will then create a drawing inspired by Picasso’s Rose Period.Each student will make a drawing about a time when he / she was happy or relaxed.   This week, each student will plan his / her drawing in pencil.

2nd Grade: The 2nd graders will finish creating fabric designs inspired by Adire cloth created by the Yourba people of Nigeria.

3rd Grade: These students will continue learning about manuscript illuminations.  This week, each student will plan his / her historiated initial in pencil and, if time allows, each student will continue coloring his / her design.

4th Grade: Students in these classes will continue learning how artists use different techniques, different amounts of pressure, hatching, cross-hatching, stippling) to create different values.  This week, each student will use one of these techniques to create a drawing.  Each student’s drawing must use at least 5 different values.

5th Grade: The 5th graders will continue learning about value (the lightness or darkness of a color). This week, students will learn about highlights, midtones, and shadows and each student will continue to create drawings of at least 3 simple shapes (cube, sphere, or cone) and show the highlights, midtones, and shadows for each object.
