Foam Printmaking - Cityscapes
Students chose someone they admire and drew a portrait of them. They also had to learn about artist statements and write one to go with their portrait.
Along with the Day of the Dead and All Souls Day we read the book Uncle Monarch. This is a story about the monarch butterflies migrating to Mexico. The souls of our passed loved ones come to visit in the forms of monarch butterflies. The students used oil pastels and watercolor paint to create their own butterflies.
Third grade is learning about the POP Art period and the artist Andy Warhol. They will be working on complimentary color schemes in their artwork.
