First grade collagraphs.
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.

ints, shades and tones created by 3rd grade. Students learned about organic vs. geometric shapes and practiced drawing them to use as a template for their color mixing practice. This warm up exercise will help everyone practice mixing tints, shades and tones before creating monochromatic landscape paintings.
