Paper Flowers

5th Graders showed their individual creativity by cutting and assembling paper flowers.  Students spend a few art classes using different techniques to paint and color multiple sheets of construction paper.  One technique shown below was using watered down marker ink to drip color onto their paper.  Other techniques included stamping and using objects to paint with and creating texture rubbing with crayons. 


Once all their paper was ready, students observed images of flowers for inspiration before constructing their artwork.  The results were amazing!




Summer Shades

2nd Grade drew self-portraits illustrating their summer plans in their sunglasses.



1st Graders used Crayola Model Magic to create a Lollipops!


Open Mouth Singers

3rd Graders drew themselves as an Open Mouth Singer on a softly colored background with music clef and notes.


Open Mouth Creatures

4th Grade students designed Open Mouth Creatures.


Kindergartners created BUTTERFLIES!  First students painted the outside of a cardboard tube.  Then traced and cut heart shapes for the wings and glued on smaller shapes to decorate.  Faces and antennae were added to complete their project. 

1 day Activities

Throughout the school year students of all grade levels will do a variety of 1 day activities in the art room.  Activities (some are represented in the images below) may include individual or team building drawing games, coloring/following directions activities and working while watching drawing videos. 










1st Grade assembled an ocean floor background and then cut and glued on their decorated fish.



2nd Graders assembled Cityscapes at Night.

Paper Mobiles

4th Grade cut and assembled paper mobiles inspire by the artwork of Henri Matisse.
