First grade students studied the artist Paul Cezanne and used his painting "Still Life with Apples and Peaches" as inspiration for their own still life. Day 1 of this project, students used colored construction paper to draw and color their apples. On day 2, they used watercolor paints and crayons to create a textured background paper. On the third day, students used scissors and glue to create the still life collage! Check out their amazing apples below!

Fifth grade students created a fall landscape picture that demonstrates the understanding of one-point perspective. They had to add at least 1 detail to each area of the background, middle ground and foreground as well. Students used markers, chalk and water to create their landscapes.

Second grade students learned about the art of printmaking in this project. Students drew a fall landscape on 1/2 of their paper using oil pastels. Next, they used a ruler to "print" the image as a reflection on the other 1/2 of their paper. Students used blue watercolor paints to fill in the sky and water area. The last step was to add leaves to the trees! Take a look at the beautiful fall landscapes below!
Fourth grade students created their own illustrations to go along with a word they found in the dictionary. Each student received a different page from the dictionary. Next, they brainstormed at least 2 ideas of illustrations they could draw, using the words on their page. For the final copy, students drew their illustration right on the dictionary page, outlined it with black marker and then used water color paints to add color. Can you guess the word each student chose?
Third grade students created landscape paintings that featured a barn and silo. During this lesson students learned how to mix the intermediate colors. They had to include at least 2 intermediate colors somewhere within their painting. Students also became familiar with the background, middle ground and foreground areas of a landscape. Check out their beautiful artwork below!
