Shapes and Lines

This week, my "Firsties" learned about different kinds of shapes- geometric and organic.  They used oil pastels to draw geometric shapes and filled them with different kinds of lines.  Students then used watercolor paints to fill in the background with organic shapes.  Check out their amazing artwork below!

Faces of Yowell

During the first week of art class, students created a self portrait using only one color. We talked about how color can effect a person's mood and help to describe our emotions. Check out the beautiful faces of our Yowell students below!!
