1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade artists have been learning about illustrators Eric Carle and George Rodrigue. After watching how Eric Carle created illustrations with tissue paper, students sketched ideas for their own tissue paper creations. They are now adding the finishing touches to their artwork with watercolor. I can't wait to see these hanging in the hallway!
Kindergarten listened to The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. We discussed if they have ever felt grouchy and things you can do to feel better when grouchy. We considered Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them do to you,” and how it feels when someone treats us badly. Students then drew, cut paper, glued, and painted their own ladybugs. I love how they all turned out with their own amazing ladybug personalities!
