K/1 Leaf Prints

Kindergartners and first graders reviewed warm colors while adding some new words to their art vocabulary. We learned ‘Visual Texture from Mrs. Fuglestad’s Dryden students in this video as well as how to draw trees with branches using the letter ‘V’.

First we went outside to choose our perfect leaf for printing.  Then we came back inside to learn the difference between real texture (the bumps on our leaves) and visual texture (drawing our trees to look like the bark is bumpy).  Then we drew ourselves playing around the trees and printed our leaves in our tree branches.

Happy Halloween!

The Kindergartners and first graders have been busy learning about warm and cool colors by mod podging tissue paper.

One sheet for warm colors (Yellow, Red, Orange) and one for cool colors (Blue, Green, Purple).

They took their warm color sheet and cut out a pumpkin head.  With the cool color sheet, they cut out clothing for their pumpkin people.
