Pre-K Cardboard Assemblages

Pre-K students looked at the work of Marcus Oakley. Then they played with shapes. They tried lots of ways to arrange and rearrange the shapes.  After they had fun mixing paint to come up with their own color palettes. Finally they painted their assemblages.

Today was Creativity Day!  The art show was open for families in the gym and a whole bunch of art projects were happening in the cafeteria (which I’ll blog about later this week). For the 2nd year in a row we raffled off artwork created by each class at our school. Our music teacher donated guitars that he was replacing and students custom painted them (I did touch ups and polyurethaned them). Students took turns during art class adding to the designs. 4th-2nd grade created abstract pieces, though 3rd and 4th focused on symmetry.  1st grade focused on lines and Kinder created fish drawings that I decoupaged on because they have been studying aquatic life.  From top to bottom 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, Kinder.
