Kindergarteners went on a field trip to a pizzeria to learn how to make pizza while studying how to books. In art we created collage pizzas. We "baked" them in our pizza oven (drying rack). On the day we added our toppings one of the kindergartners was very outspoken about his pizza being a sushi not anchovy pizza. Can you spot the sushi pizza?
Recent bulletin boards. 1st grade paper weavings and mandala drawings and kindergarten body portraits.
Kindergarten pastel butterfly drawings.
Kindergarten body portraits are one of my favorite projects of the year. They are so fun!
Kindergarteners just finished up these great mixed media pieces. We read the story “If the Dinosaurs Came Back” by Bernard Most then created drawings of cities using geometric shapes. Afterward students cut out shapes from pre-drawn templates. Then we collaged them together and added a pattern to the body and face and added them to our cities.
Kindergarteners do an aquatic study in science at our school. They have an aquarium in their classroom, they visit the local aquarium, they learn about different bodies of water, and a variety of aquatic animals. In art we practiced drawing a variety of ocean animals from reference photos while working on an ocean mural. We used watercolors for the sand and water (adding salt to create texture). Then we used tempera to paint seaweed and stamp coral. Last each Kinder group chose an ocean animal and we used printmaking foam to create stamps.
The art show!
Kindergarten finished up animal drawings a few weeks back. We used oil pastels and watercolors.
