Warm colors, falling leaves, spooks and goblins, these are just some of the things that come to mind at this time of year. The first and second graders worked on projects that incorporated these ideas. The first graders learned how to draw trees with branches and then used sponge painting and warm colors to add the leaves to their pictures. The second graders created a tissue collage using warm colors and then added a line drawing of a tree and other things that reminded them of fall.
Over the past 30 years I have taught art to kindergarten - 8th graders in a variety of configurations. During the 09/10 school year I will have 1st-6th graders and will be working in two buildings. I live in a small midwestern community with my husband and two children ages 13 and 10. I also enjoy good food, the great outdoors, our pets and spending time with family and friends.
