My first grade did an amazing job drawing their cats and adding geometric shapes in the background.
They developed skills in flow drawing which is an art technique developed by artycrafykids.com to encourage children to understand shapes and create them in a freer way.
Students were encouraged to discover a natural flow, bringing mindfulness to the creative process.
Students enhanced their drawing by adding personality and geometric shapes in the background.
Students experimented with a mixture of mediums.

My 4th Grade girls learned how to paint silhouettes. They first used red and yellow paint to blend the background sunset. They then painted camels and palm trees with black paint.
My 1st graders made deserts in a box. I found this idea on Pinterest and fell in love with it. Great for teaching foreground, middle ground, and background. Picture doesn’t do them justice.
Lastly my 3rd Grade boys used oil pastel for the background of their landscapes. Then ripped construction paper for foreground and middle ground layers. Lastly they drew camels on black paper and glued them onto their landscapes.
I absolutely Love how they all came together to create this dynamic display for the schools entrance.
1st grade used white paint to make stars and moon on black construction paper. They then cut out shapes and glued them on paper to create houses and buildings resembling their community. I absolutely love how these came out.
