Middle school students finished their study on value and tone and began working on their next projects.
1st & 2nd graders finished their paper weaving and many experimented with threading needles and adding yarn. They look beautiful hanging in the Middle School hallways.
On Monday 3rd & 4th graders painted their clay pots and 5th graders painted their clay looms. They are beautiful! 5th grade will be using their looms for weaving next week. To see more about our clay projects you can click here.
Kindergarten students read the Rainbow Fish story and used oil pastels to color their rainbow fish.
Yes the last two weeks have been jam packed with fun in the FBCS Art room. We celebrated book character day with Mrs. Orman, Mrs. Trense, and the 2nd grade. Children shared their costumes, ate popcorn and goldfish, and made beautiful bookmarks.
Second through fifth grade studied weaving. We learned about Kente cloth weaving and talked about the weavings made for the tabernacle in the book of Exodus. The students were excited to hear that the Israelites wove real gold through their cloth. I had to break the news that we didn't have real gold, only yarn. With hard work and persistence they completed their projects and wrote why their weaving would look beautiful in the tabernacle. If you come through the middle school building you may see you child's art hanging in the art room or in the halls.
Kindergarten students used oil pastels to complete their Rainbow Fish. They are now learning about movement and Edgar Degas. Little thumbprint people are dancing, running, swimming, and skateboarding around their papers.
I enjoyed seeing so many of our students today in Art class. I am blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school! Kindergarteners began creating shape people and sixth through eighth graders are perfecting and refining their drawing skills. Below is a video on paper Kente weaving that our second and third graders watched. They will begin weaving their own next week.
