The start of the school year is always filled you such excitement!
Donations of Clorox wipes will be GREATLY appreciated!
After reintroducing ourselves to each other and the classroom, I love to work on name inspired artworks for the start of the year. Name art incorporates line and shape, when using a scheme, it also incorporates color. It is a fun place to start and a great way to get creative juices flowing.
4th and 5th grade will be working on Graffiti art. We will discuss real-world examples, and the ethics behind graffiti making, or tagging. We will use perspective to make our names really pop!
3rd graders will be creating name bugs. This is a fun project that always turns out great. Students can also practice their cursive skills on this one.
1st and 2nd graders will be creating a name art inspired by the artist Paul Klee. They will work on handwriting, repetition, color schemes, folding, and more!
Kindergarten will be creating rubbings from three dimensional versions of their own names. They will work on tracing to improve name spelling, letter recognition, and handwriting.
