Kindergartners and first graders began by reviewing warm and cool colors while learning about artist Jasper Johns.
Students began by using Mod Podge and newspaper to create texture. Then chose a warm or cool color to paint their background.
Kindergartners picked their favorite numbers and practiced tracing them. They chose three and used oil pastels (opposite color group of their background) to create pattern on the numbers, cut them out and glued them on their backgrounds. (First graders drew numbers free hand).
Kindergartners and first graders learned that by using all these different art supplies in one project (mod podge, newspaper, paint and oil pastels) they created a mixed media art project.
